This stew satisfies the appetites of my husband and son, who are real meat-and-potatoes men. It's easy on the family budget, yet is special enough to serve to guests.

"I was inititally going to give this recipe a so-so rating. However, my husband ate the leftovers after the stew had sat around for 2-3 days (he NEVER wants to throw anything out), and lo and behold he said it was delicious! Most stews improve with standing for 1-2 days, and this must be one of them. I also used leftover pork roast, along with some pork ends. I'll bet sweet potatoes or yams would be really good in this stew, too, instead of red potatoes!"

"I adjusted this recipe using left over pork roast. I also adjusted it to serve 4. Used russet potatoes and frozen mixed vegetables as that is what I had on hand. And it took less time as the meat was already cooked. It was very tasty.

Always nice to have something to make using the left over roast."
