This soup contains no less than three different types of meat and more vegetables than you can count. It's a substantial soup, which needs to be slow cooked over 5 hours. The result is a delicious hearty soup.
This recipie takes a long time to pt together, but at the end of the day its worth it! The taste is full and hearty. Its a good recipie for a church pot-luck supper, since there never seems to be enough meat dishes at those events. Its also a good idea to have two people preping this recipie. enjoy! - 25 Jan 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Okay I made this with a few changes. Here it goes! I didn't have chicken but I had some turkey in the freezer left over from Thanksgiving I used it instead. I didn't have the pork loin, so I chopped up some pork chops and I didn't have the beef stew meat, so I used ground beef. I cut the receipe in half and followed the rest of the directions. It came out fantastic. This is a wonderful stew. Very satisify on a cold day. I served this stew with homemade bread right out of the oven. Ummmm!!!!!! ( I used the Crusty Bread Receipe from this site also. Very good bread.) - 09 Dec 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
the rutabaga makes this different, special, and great! gives any veg. soup or stew better and more flavorful. It's a shame so many people don't know it's virtues. - 17 May 2011 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
