Scrapple is a good old Pennsylvania Dutch farm treat. Served hot and sizzling as a side with hot cakes, waffles,eggs and home fries, or just by itself. Spicy and delicious it's hard to find out side of Pennsylvania. This recipe is for those of us who have a hankering for this old German dish but just can not find it where we now live.

1 to 2 lbs. of chevon stew meat
4-8 Irish potatoes diced
1 medium cooking onion chopped
4-6 carrots cut up
1 cup of fresh or frozen peas
1 cup fresh or frozen cut green beans
1 cup of tomato sauce
season with garlic, black pepper, bay leaves, ground cloves, and Worcestershire sauce to taste.
I like to cook my stew slowly all day long in a dutch oven. First brown the meat, diced potatoes, carrots, and onions at a setting of 350 degrees. When the meat is browned add enough water to cover it and then some. Next add the tomato sauce, peas, green beans, and seasonings to taste. Lower the temperature to 275 (slow cook) and let it simmer all day. By meal time the meat will be tender and the flavors rich. Enjoy with home made bread and butter.
