"First time i made it as directed, a little to sweet for our taste. This time i used a touch of honey and it was perfect. I love it for the crock pot too!"

"Very hearty and satisfying! I will use a little less sugar the next time. The sweet potatoes made it pretty sweet. I used pearl onions instead of small onions quartered. I think they held together better and gave the stew an interesting texture twist."
