I made this tonight, but with some major alterations so I thought I would post comments, but not star the recipe. As I made it, I would give it 4 stars. I used a crock pot and a beef roast. I followed the steps through browning the meat. I then removed the meat to the crock pot and added the wine, then followed the steps through adding the tomato and spices. I poured the sauce over the roast and slow cooked it for 9 hours. It was too runny because of the cooking technique, so I added a can of tomato paste and another Tablespoon of Capers at the end of the cooking cycle. I served it over gnocchi. It was very good this way, but I still want to try it as you have listed; cooked on the stove top with the garlic mashed.
