This recipe is definitely an original stew. I told you before; but stews are my favourite recipes when I have guests coming over. Everything is ready before anyone is coming, easy. Then you got plenty of time to spend with your friends during aperitif. If somebody is late, doesn’t matter. A stew can cook 30 minutes more usually. That’s even better. This is also a dish that you can prepare one day before. It will taste even better. I served this stew together with a potatoes purée. Make a puit in the center of mashed potatoes and fill it with some stew sauce. Your children will love it! And you too!
