MY REVIEW

I thought this was tasty, but my husband was not so enthusiastic. Maybe it was the type of spaghetti sauce I used.

This was surprisingly good! I used a chuck roast and shredded it, the red wine added a very nice flavor. Sauce was a little thin.

Easy meal. Combine the ingredients the night before and then just put it in the slow cooker on my way out the door. Come home to raves at dinner time.

This was ok. I'm not a big roast person, but the rest of the family loved it.
