READY IN: 3hrs 5mins
Recipe by Dancer

This also can be made in a crockpot. I add different veggies, cubed squash, and 1/2 can baby peas, just added the peas the last 5 minutes of cooking. This is great on a cold winters day. Enjoy!

My husband took one bite and said, "this is delicious!" I fully agree. I only had canned mushrooms on hand but will use fresh next time. I added a 1/2 cup of cream sherry. The wine is definitely a great addition. I did add the carrots and mushrooms early and later threw in a few frozen peas with the potatoes.
