“This easy stew begins to thicken during the last hour of cooking. Very rich wonderful stew. I have been making this for a long time and cut it out of a magazine years ago. The last 20 minutes you can add some frozen peas or frozen beans if you would like. If useing fresh small baby onions, add an hour before stew is done. Update: I have made this stew in my crockpot and it has turned out perfect. I did stir it a couple times just to incorporate everything.”
