Red Flannel Stew Recipe

Publisher Photo
WHEN I was child, every Saturday night was Red Flannel Night. Grandpa and I wore our red flannel underwear to supper and Grandma, the cook, dressed in a long calico dress and sunbonnet. We’d eat Red Flannel Stew spooned over fluffy Southern style biscuits. Grandma learned to make the stew from earlier generations.
