This is a stick-to-the-ribs stew I learned as a child from my Gram's. If you like a thicker stew, you can use more cornstarch.

I was very disappointed with this recipe. The cooking time is way off. Had to move it to a pot on the stove to finish cooking it to have it for a supper that was later than I planned. I will not make it again.

This was a Great recipe, my family loved it. I did tweek it a little, I added 2 cups more of broth, and I substituted the wine with a little broth (have small kids), I also added some celery flakes, and some frozen pees. other than that it was a Great dish!!!!

I found this recipe very basic but with a little creativity it was very good. I added some of my own spices and the cook time is also off I ended up cooking on high for 6 hours. But in the end it was pretty good.
