About this recipe: An easy to prepare, rich and tasty dish that is good enough for a dinner party or dinner at home. Alternately, this can be cooked in a slow cooker on low for 6-8 hours.
I made this using the slow cooker for 6 hours. I used half the wine, substituting more with the beef stock. I also added dumplings about five hours in the cooking time which absolutely made the stew the best I ever made. I definitely recommend this recipe! - 08 Apr 2011

Something else. I added dumplings which added a more tasty dimension to the stew as well as bulking it out further. - 08 Apr 2011
