It was ok. Not fabulous. I'm not sure I'll ever make it again.

Very good and easy. So nice to prepare this recipe for Sunday dinner, and just sit back with a glass of wine and relax until dinner time. I was a little afraid of how it would come out, but it was fine - not too tomatoey. Since I lacked the time called for in the recipe, I cooked it on high for 4 1/2 hours and it came out great. Thickening the gravy is a good idea, and I will do that next time. Simple, good recipes like this one are the reason I subscribe to Taste of Home!

This was good. The tang didn't really come thru, but it was still good. Nothing remarkable.

I substituted a large jar of Brown Gravy for the Wine & it was excellent.

Not too sweet, not too tangy, but wow, who needs butter on those potatoes!? The carrots were amazing! I am sharing this on my FB page!

Trying this recipe is part of my month of slow cooking, in response to high power bills! Also I am never sure when my husband will be home and its hard to plan dinners that way. So we would end up eating junk or take out. This way he can eat when he gets home and its not ruined. This was a tasty dish, I did make extra sauce at the end of the cook time but it was great. More sweet than tangy , you couldn't taste the wine like in similar recipes I've tried. So you may want to adjust the ingredients to your liking. I would use more wine next time and maybe some broth too. I don't like cooked carrots but ate them up in this sauce!
