“My Uncle Bill was the best cook ever! Well, that's what I though while growing up anyways. He used to make what HE called a "Bulgarian stew", and being he was from Bulgaria maybe it truly was. One thing it is for sure is delicious. This is perfect for a cold day and goes great with baked potatoes and his "Bulgarian Salad". Also, make sure you have some fresh Italian or French bread to sop up the juice in the bottom of the bowl...MMMMM good!”
