My husband is from Fall River, MA (high Portuguese population) and we've been searching for soups and stews for him to take to work. He is a very picky eater and he LOVES this. "A keeper" he said. I am not fond of canned veggies, so I used fresh green beans added at the 20 minute mark, then cooked for another 20 minutes and it came out wonderful. Next time we might try adding some cabbage. :)



This dish is best with fresh green beans! When I make it, I replace the tomato sauce with a can of beer. Mine is not really like a stew, but a hearty dish with enough broth to dip some nice crusty bread....



like my grandmother use to make excellent! ive missed it till now
