I was enjoying a TV program where I got the idea of preparing this stew.  If you are on the process of weight loss in natural process then this will be the most desired recipe you are looking for.  Believe me, I tried it this weekend and thought of making a ‘must’ in my diet  for a longer term as I was determined to lose those extra kilos through dieting.
