MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 25, 2012

"This is a great recipe that I'm planning on doing again. The meat was tender and the taste was great! The only thing that I would try next time is to season the meat the night before with some Adobo OR a "sofrito" rub (peppers,onions,garlic,cilantro and salt)."

"I made this for a client and they loved it. Being able to put it in the Crock Pot was an added bonus."

"Because I have a 3qt slow cooker I halved the recipe. No Problem.I was not sure about the parsnips, never having them before, but they absorbed the juices and seasoning and were very flavorful. Making the second half today."

"This had excellent flavor, but I put it in the oven."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 13, 2011

"I thought this was very good. I didnt' have wine so I subbed extra beef broth and subbed the shitake mushrooms with regular mushrooms becausue of the expense. I thought it was good and would be even better with the wine and mushrooms.. Also, It made alot of gravy so I would think you really don't need as much liquid next time."
