I loved this one, I did cheat a little and just threw it all in the crockpot adding the cheese towards the end of cooking. The mat was lovely & tender and full of flavour, the cheese is an unusual but tasty addition, really gives the dish a nice richness. Thanks for posting!

This was really good and easy to make. I put it over rice but hubby said he thinks that he would prefer it over pasta. I followed the recipe except I used beef broth for the red wine as I didn't have any wine. This was a nice meal that I will make again.
