"This recipe is adapted from a recipe shared by our Aunt Dot. The ground turkey makes it healthier, although ground beef can be used instead. Can be made in a slow cooker for an easy yummy meal! Good Virginia cooking!" — Karen

Awesome stew!!! It was simple and easy to make. I used a crock pot - and let it cook for most of the day. I added a little more salt and pepper to suit my taste.
Maybe this is obvious, but I found it odd that the recipe didn't instruct you to brown the turkey first. Also, I omitted the bacon, added a cup of lima beans and a dash of cayenne pepper for a better flavor.
This recipe had an odd mixture of flavours. Also, I love salt, but even this was too much! I recommend removing the regular salt altogether, and just keeping the garlic salt.
Overall, an interesting recipe, but not one I'll put into my regular meal planning.
This was an ok base recipe, I used chicken broth instead of water & cut out the bacon & salts. Needs a little fine tuning, I'll have to make some changes next time...
I followed others' suggestions and cut back the salt signficantly. I also made this in the crock pot, cooked on low about 7 hours, with the ingredients layered in the order listed. I would recommend decreasing the liquid if you are making this in a crock pot. Also, next time I think I will cook the bacon on the side and serve it as a topping to sprinkle over; cooked with the rest of the ingredients, I was disappointed that it did not contribute much flavor. Overall, good and my husband commented on the wealth of flavors -- will make again.
This recipe is basically ok, but 3 tsp. salt and especially 3 tsp. black pepper is way too much!
I cut out the salt entirely and added slightly less than a tsp. of pepper, but some in my
family still thought it was too spicy. Other than that, though, we enjoyed it.
Thank you for the warnings about salt. I didn't have any turkey or beef, so we used chicken. I partially cooked the bacon in a skillet, just enough to draw out some grease, and then cooked cubed chicken in the bacon grease (yum). Because the chicken and bacon were already partially cooked, I only cooked the stew for about an hour. Turned out terrific!
Great recipe. Agree with others that the salt is too much. Here's how I decided to make it. Substitute ground buffalo (bison) for the turkey. Eliminate salt alltogether (diners can add to taste). Reduce garlic salt to 2 tsp and add 1 tsp minced garlic. I also added a diced shallot.
