Oyster Stew with Vegetables Recipe

Provided By
Traditional oyster stew doesn't have the vegetables in it but you'll find this to be a refreshing change. The potatoes thicken the stew from their starch. Be careful not to over cook the oysters.

"This is the recipe I always use around the holidays. Be sure the vegetables are fully cooked before you add the oysters. I sometimes make this in advance before adding the oysters and refrigerate until ready to serve. Then I heat it up, add the oysters and cook just until they are done. Perfect."
