We have all enjoyed this stew dish many times.It's a bit different than the typical(and also good!)carrots 'n potato type beef stew!The recipe is from a tried and true cookbook of mine called "Back to Homemade" and is filled with exactly that-old fashioned,and homemade goods!As I shared below,my family enjoys this with "My Mom's Best Anadama Bread" which seems to be good with just about anything!I hope you enjoy this and that it warms your hearts,too!
