Meet the Cook: Even before it got cold outside last fall, my husband had asked me to make this stew twice. In fact, here at home, our name for it is "Tom's Favorite Stew". We're the parents of two children - a 9-year-old boy and 8-year-old girl. -Linda Schwarz, Bertrand, Nebraska

MY REVIEW

This stew was o.k. It is hearty and filling, i will give it that. But it had little flavor and there was certainly nothing special about it. I really don't understand how it won a blue ribbon.

I'm not a stew person, but this was absolutely delicious. I also substituted 1 1/2 pound stew meat for the ground beef. I just cut it up into small pieces. This recipe is definitely a keeper.

I cut this meat and potato stew recipe in half for two people and used ground turkey instead of beef. Used unpeeled, red potatoes choppped. We added hot sauce at the table as desired and this recipe was perfect. Had leftovers. Will definitely prepare again and again.
