Fantastic Dish!, Member waterhands20

I'll admit that I cringed when I saw 'cinnamon' in the ingredient list, but I decided to give it a try and do a nice variation of my usual beef stew. All I can say is wow; Overall I am pleasantly surprised with this dish. I changed it up just a bit, replacing flour with 1 1'2 small cans of tomato sauce instead, and added short grain brown rice to the stew [A lovely Puerto Rican stew idea; only changing the type of rice commonly used (white to brown)]. I also added a pinch of Cayenne to give it a little spice and it turned out fantastic! Will definitely be using this recipe again in the future.
