If you follow my fitness and health instagram @projecthilaj then you would have seen this stew 2 months ago. I have had so many people ask me for the recipe that I decided to post it here and just share the link.

You need time or a pressure cooker for this stew and it’s sooo worth it. If you have a slow cooker, this recipe will work beautifully.
