This is such a great recipe that I've probably made hundreds of times over the past 30 years. Ever have one of those recipes that the whole neighborhood can smell cooking?? It's just that good and good for you, too. No heavy brown gravy and huge chunks of potatoes. Definitely not 'yo momma's stew.

My absolute favorite for cool rainy days. Watch your family's face light up when they open the door and smell this cooking. Low & slow cooking is the secret here.

Serve with a loaf of warm bread and butter and you'll have something to sponge up all of the yummy sauce with!
