Mamma's Cabbage Patch Stew

Zelda Hopkins


My Mom used to make a stew similar to this one. She didn't use kidney beans in hers. Since I have some picky eaters in my house I will use my mamma's recipe. I love this and its so simple.I like serving it with slices of Cheese and a dollop of sour cream. Hope you enjoy this.
