Since I work all day, it's great to come home knowing I have a very delicious meal simmering in the slow cooker. I like to serve generous helpings of this stew with corn bread muffins. - Mary jo Walker, Jasper, Tennessee

"I really enjoyed this recipe. It was really inexpensive to make and lasted a long time! I personally prefer it without the cornbread muffins on the side. My husband said it reminded him of shephards pie. I loved the fact that it was hearty and filling. I also went ahead and portioned out the leftovers to take for work during the week. Did i mention how easy it is to make?? Im definitely gonna make it again!"
