This is the best stew ever. I made it with pork and it was great. We use to have a land of lakes cookbook, but it was lost during our last move. I was soooooo happy that I found your site and this much loved recipe!

Wonderful winter meal. I also make it in a cast iron dutchoven- I like it better that way- I got the recipe out of one of the LandoLakes cookbooks. It has such a unique and yummy flavor.
