This was delicious! The only change I made was I cooked the meat in the dutch oven then removed from pan and followed the rest of the recipe. I don't care for cooking meat in the microwave. I also used cooking sherry instead of red wine, that's all I had on hand. This makes a lot. I still have enough leftover for 2 more meals for a family of 5. Thanks for a great recipe, will be making this often!
