MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 7, 2012

Although I haven't tried this recipe yet, I can almost taste it and I'm thinking it may be like the wonderful flavor of carrots from a delicious pot roast. I'll try it with the chicken broth first and then with beef broth. Maybe some fingerling potatoes added with more of the liquid.
