“Here is a crock pot stew that I found published in the Minneapolis Tribune many years ago. After you brown the meat and put every thing together, it cooks by itself. I have never met Nancy, but I thank her every time the aroma of this meal in a pot fills my kitchen. It serves at least 4 hungry people and left over's can be refrigerated for several days. After cooking all day, it still retains it's sweet/sour characteristics without either a burned taste or the washed out blandness that often requires more seasoning when served.”
