“I made this in the crock pot with things i had on hand. I didn't want the same old beef stew, so i looked here first and combined about 3 recipes. I hope it is enjoyed by all. Makes alot. I froze the left overs. Served with corn bread muffins sour cream and shredded cheddar cheese. I have a hard time measuring but these are close. I eyeball most things. This is basic and can be adjusted to suit your family. I did all my prep the day before (even the muffins).”
