Very Good 4.7/5

Note:
I tried this recipe when visiting in Maine at a little country flea market and I personally am not a fan of Rhubarb. When I have a chance to get Rhubarb I grab it now.
Also my spouse doesn't know there is Rhubarb in it and he loves it. The Rhubarb and blueberries compliment each other.
Enjoy

Very Good 4.6/5
(73 ratings)

This is a recipe that I have been experimenting with and tweaking for years. Always a family favorite and they didn't even notice the difference when I re-invented it using low fat ingredients and turkey instead of beef.

The best thing about this meal is how much fun you can have making it. Since it is more of a "stew" I have added all kinds of different vegetables and sometimes even put left over pot roast in with it. Have fun and be creative!

Halloween - Autumn Variation: Make this recipe just as described below but remove the potatoes and add one can (15oz) of pumpkin puree and 1 tablespoon pumpkin pie spice! 1 tsp of ground cumin is always nice also..
