    The taste is good but the direction were not clear. The merlot and water should be in the list of ingredients. When I added the patties to the skillet, I was not sure if I had to let them cook a little bit. I waited 2 minutes, then flipped the patties. I added the merlot and water. I should have waited to cook the other side. Cause while it was simmering, the patties were still raw. I didn't know what to do. So I put the skillet in the oven at 350 F for about 30 minutes. I didn't have gravy to serve the patties. I was disappointed a lot. We had to eat something else cause it took too much time. Made for TYM tag game
