Beef and Lamb Stew

1 review

I asked for this recipe after a recent trip to South Africa with my church. This stew includes lots of fresh garden vegetables and meat. I've made it for my friends on several occasions, and they thought it was great and enjoyed the interesting combination of flavors. It's traditionally served with brown rice or pumpkin fritters.—Dennis Kuyper, Creston, Iowa
