Delicious-I browned the meat with the onions just to sear and then tossed it all in the crockpot for 8 hours on low. My funny story is that all I had for red wine was a bottle of Lambrusco that we brought home from our summer trip to Italy-oh well it worked and was wonderful to finish with dinner.
Yummy and rich, loved the flavor of the spices and wine, The gravy is Deliciuos with sour dough bread. DH says the recipe is a keeper. Very easy to make, love things that are cooked in the oven. Thank you Rita for another great recipe.
Awesome recipe! I forgot to buy a red pepper so I didn't use one, just used extra onion. Also, I added about 3/4 cup of brandy. Delicious!!! Will make again.
Oh my! Well worth the wait! This is a new favorite! The only change I made was to add a couple of beef bouillon cubes to the red wine. I used a Cabernet Sauvignon. Next time, I would go ahead and add a couple cups of water or extra wine because after 2-1/2 hours, the liquid was almost gone and it was getting pretty dry on top. I served it with my favorite rustic French bread, http://www.food.com/recipe/traditional-artisan-style-baguette-rustic-french-bread-391163. Thank you so much!
Delicious & healthy recipe!
Great! Absolutely delicious!
I cannot describe how delicious this turned out! It was so easy to put together and had a really good robust flavor. When I have the time to put into it, I am going to attempt Julia Child's recipe for this dish.
I have made the original Julie Childs recipe before and it takes hours of preparation, but this this was nice and easy and very tasty. It made enough that I could freeze extra for another night.
This had such great flavor! I just subbed a couple things. I used boiler onions instead of pearl, (cheaper), and cut them in half. I couldn't find fresh button mushrooms so I just used the standard white ones and cut in half. I couldn't believe how easy this all went together and how flavorful it was. Thanks for posting! :)
