2-Pound Stew - Dee Dee's

This rich, hearty stew has a very unique sweet flavor thanks to its tomato and brown sugar base. It is best if left simmering for several hours so that all of its strong flavors have a chance to mix with each other. It makes a wonderful supper served with thick slices of sourdough bread toasted and buttered.

I found this recipe years ago and I make it every couple of years to stock up the freezer. Very much like (if not the same) camp stew or brunswick stew. This recipe makes about 4-gallons so have a very LARGE pot ready.

Note: I like it a little hotter so I add red pepper and red pepper flakes.
