Made up of fairly basic pantry staples that I almost always have on hand, it’s especially great when I know I’m due for a grocery shop. Unlike most traditional stews that take hours to cook, this one is ready in about twenty minutes. But the best part? It’ll still taste like you’ve been working on it all day.
