This recipe as written would produce a sweeter stew than I tasted at the Moonlite Inn. As I am unable to obtain the mutton, I used a venison shoulder, fresh and deboned. I used tomato paste instead of ketchup, deleted the corn, and added a little BBQ sauce. This yielded a stew almost identical. Overall, outstanding!
