This was very good. I made it a day ahead and used chopped baby carrots. It had a nice flavor and I really enjoyed the wine in it. Thanks for sharing. Made for Best of 2014 tag.
We had this for dinner last night. I left out the thyme, not a fan. I didn't have any pearl onions and didn't want to to go to the store. The sauce consistency was nice and thick. The meat was cooked just the right amount with the timing. Made for Favorites of 2014.
Delicious! I made this a day in advance just so the flavors could blend together...I cut the recipe in half...instead of slice carrots I use baby carrots...this yummy dish was served over Brewmaster's Spaetzle...but I'm sure egg noodles would be just as delicious...be aware that the thyme is very dominant...so decrease the amount if you aren't a major fan...Made for Spring 2014 PAC...=)
