    This is an amazing dish! The flavour is wonderful. I was looking for something that was different from all of my usual ground beef meals and this one leapt out at me. Even after searching all over the web I found myself coming back to this recipe over and over, so I decided that I’d give it a try. Boy, am I glad I did as this was a loved meal for all. I did do as a previous reviewer had mentioned trying and I sautéed everything in my slow cooker that needed to be fried then flipped the dial to low slow cook and it turned out perfect! Thanks for that thought pennylane9475!

    Great recipe! Spicy! I can't have soy sauce so I substituted coconut aminos. Also added 1 cup beef broth. The potatoes weren't fully cooked so I may pre-cook those next time. The red wine really adds to this recipe IMO.

    I made this for my family last week and we all loved it! Great flavors. I might try to put this in the slow cooker.

    This one is a keeper! Easy to prepare and great flavor. I will cut the potatoes even smaller next time (for faster cooking), but that's the only change I will make.
