Rich I made it the other day and while the meat, etc. was cooking, I precooked the carrots, then added the spuds, Cooked them both almost done then added them to the stew to finish and get flavor. It saved about 1/2 hour.

We took 1st place in the Savory Season cooking contest with it. Use Any type of strong meat, like deer, elk, or mutton. Great with beef too.
