First just let me say that this dish is delicious. I'm not sure I made it properly. I tried following the directions, but I'm not sure that cacciatore is supposed to fall apart like that. Perhaps six hours is too long? It was more like a pulled pork than a traditional cacciatore. With chicken or rabbit, you generally have distinct pieces of the animal to serve. But it does hold up to its title of being melt in your mouth! I have a tone of leftovers, but it will go quickly because it is that good. I served this with pasta rather than the suggested mashed potatoes, but I can see how it would be good partnered with mash.
This was delicious! I was pressed for time so I couldn't make it in the slow cooker as I had planned. I cut the roast into bite sized peices and dredged them in flour, salt, pepper and garlic powder. I browned the beef in olive oil, removed it from the pot and sauteed the veggies in the same pot. Once the veggies were tender, I added the wine and cooked it down for a few minutes. Then I added the beef back in along with the remaining ingredients. I added a sprinkle of crushed red pepper and I used beef broth instead of water. I simmered it for two hours. I served it over egg noodles. Great recipe! I will definitely make this again!
I modified the recipe by cooking it for 9 hours on high. Adding another 1/2 cup of wine and more spice. It melted in my mouth after that. I'm serving it three ways. One with egg noodles and have garlic bread on hand to slop up the sauce. Two over rice and three over mashed potatoes.
Followed recipe exactly as explained. I was impressed with the flavors. I shredded the beef and tried it just as it came out of the slow cooker. I loved it!
However, I wanted the sauce to be a little thicker so I did add 6 oz of tomato paste. Also, I love black olives, so just for my own preference I added them. Regardless, it was good prior to my additions. Tried it with mashed potatoes, as suggested, which is great for a no-carb meal. Then, served it to my family using egg noodles, good reviews had by all. This is going in my "special" recipe book. I will be making this again and again!
It makes a lot. It would be great as a Sunday meal with family and friends. My family is small (4) so I would half the recipe. It's all good, I'm sharing what I made with others and I froze some for another day.
Thank you for sharing:)
