“A really tasty, veal stew recipe developed by Dalton Babb. Recipe can be adapted to be cooked in your crockpot. There is nothing like coming home from work on a cold wintery day and opening your door to the wonderful aroma of cooked food -and all you did was put it into the pot. Serve with French or Italian or San Francisco Sour Dough Bread. Suggest wine - a robust beaujolais”
