This stew is one of my family’s favorite meals. In recent years, we have made it on Halloween night, to eat while the trick or treaters come. It is so good and really easy to make. All you do is, chop up a few veggies, throw them in the crock pot with some meat, and seasoning. Let it hang out for a few hours and voila, you have an awesome stick to your ribs, soul warming meal.
This recipe comes from my grandma Muse. It is a wonderful meal to make in the fall and it is great as leftovers.
