This stew is wonderful on a cool Fall or Winter day. I have a large family, so we double the recipe. We love this paired with homeade breadsticks. Thanks for the recipe, it's delicious!!

I tried this for my family last Saturday night and they loved it!!! I added some ground deer meat too, and it was fabulous!! I also used long green beans instead of the peas and that was also great!! Thanks for an awesome recipe!!!!!!!!!!!
