A delicious recipe which I made in the crock pot, and it worked beautifully this way! Used Bordeaux wine and fresh thyme from my garden and used two onions as we like onions. I served this steamed potatoes and carrots with peas. Made for Thyme, the January Herb in the French Forum and Two for One leftovers in the Photo's Forum, many thanks for posting. FT:-)
