The odds are ever in your favor that you're going to LOVE this full-flavored, absolutely delicious stew.
Liked it! The meat was super-tender and loved the heartiness of the mushrooms and tomatoes. Now to take care of that extra wine! :)
This is very tasty. I didn't make the recipe, but sampled someone else's preparation of it. The cloves are the dominant spice, so if you don't like them, you'll want to scale down the amount.
