Boy, Evelyn, am I glad you got a crockpot! ;-) I'm even gladder (I know that's not a real word) that you adapted this recipe for the crock. The sherry mixture is delicious, and I used the Greek oregano that you sent me, the smell was heavenly! It was so good I made up the mixture again and this time used it on a chicken (two chickens, actually) baking them in the oven, covered, and then uncovering them for the last half hour, the glazing was crispy and delicious! I have shamefully stolen this recipe and now consider it mine, and it's already been given out to several friends. If you like, in return, you can steal some of my recipes, what are friends for!
Delicious stew and quite different. It's sweet. I used beef chuck as I didn't want to spend $14/pound for veal. I used the crockpot and it was finished in 3 hours on high. I will probably reduce the sugar to 1/2 cup next time. Thanks, Evelyn, this was a treat that made my house smell heavenly.
