This was DELICIOUS!!!! So tasty! When I began to prepare everything for the crockpot, I discovered I didn't have any red wine, so I used beer. I kept everything else the same. I used the polenta method in this recipe and added the butter & parmesan as reccomended. Everything turned out so well, and my house smelled heavenly while this was cooking in the crockpot. Oh a little tip, I didn't have a baggie, so I dumped all the coating ingredients into my slow cooker liner, dumped in all the meat, and shook it up. The liner is so large, it worked fine with the full amount of meat in there and I didn't have to use a baggie. Thanks so much for posting this recipe. I froze the leftovers, and I can't wait to eat them!
