Tips  

Expert Tips

Pearl onions are mild-flavored onions just 1/2-inch in diameter. They are a common addition to stew.

Prepare your favorite homemade meatballs to use in this stew using 1 1/4 pounds of ground meat.

Try this stew over pasta—penne or ziti work great. Serve it with a loaf of crusty French bread.
