    A whole bottle of wine was too much, when I make it again I shall use less and button mushrooms  -  14 Feb 2011  (Review from Allrecipes UK | Ireland)


    Very easy to make and very tasty too. I didn't use a whole bottle of wine as I think that would've been too much. I used a crock-pot and 6 hours on low was just right.  -  07 Aug 2011  (Review from Allrecipes UK | Ireland)


    Really lovely, all my guests ate it up quickly with some garlic-infused mashed potato and some fresh green beans. Will definately make this again.  -  14 Sep 2011  (Review from Allrecipes UK | Ireland)
