My oh my oh my. Hot & creamy stews from the crock pot are the way to my haahhhht. (I felt like saying that with a Massachusetts accent. Forgive me.) And when you serve it with biscuits, whew-amazingIn fact I just gave this to the hubs and poured the stew right on top of the biscuits…

… and it’s gone. It’s just gone.

Seriously, did he just dump it on the floor?! How did it disappear that fast?!

I’ve been dipping biscuits into this stew all day while it’s been cooking in the crock pot. I’m a bad crock pot waiter… I always cheat. (I mean taste-test…I always taste-test.)

You can toss some peas, corn, and other veggies in here too. I love using whatever I have on hand. Going to the store is overrated.  😀

I’ve also made this on the stove top as well: By following the same instructions and just cooking over medium heat in a large pot, it’s ready in about 40 minutes!
