I've only tried this once, and was actually rather successful. I thoroughly enjoyed it. Since I came across it again, I'll have to try it again soon.

Really Nice, easy to make dinner. I made this for my family of 6 and everyone enjoyed it, the sauce was especially received well! I didn't use any bay leaves or parsley and the sauce came out deliciously tasty :) The meat was very tender and next time I make it I might even make extra sauce... Thanks
