RECIPE BACKSTORY
Many years ago I found this recipe in a magazine and tweaked it a bit to appeal to my family as they loved stuffed peppers. They love this thick and hearty stew, especially with a nice hot pan of cornbread on a cold wintry night here in northern Maine. The stew is very thick unless you add more liquid to it so you have to be very careful cooking it; keep it on a lower heat and stir often. It is delicious and well worth it!!
