Country-Style Stew

I created this recipe when my husband and I were married almost 20 years ago. As a new bride, I was delighted with the delicious results. This is still our favorite stew.

    My husband LOVED this! We used deer meat instead of ground beef though. It was PERFECT for this cold, blustery, snowy night in Alabama
