Loved the favors and easy to make.
Made the recipe exactly as written and it was a disaster. The meat was tough and flavorless. However the next day I let it sit in the slow cooker for 4 hours on low and was able to rescue it. I actuallly loved the flavors and the meet was very tender, I just dont think 2 hours was enough of a braising time for a big chunck of meat like that.
I made this for my family tonight and it was a Hit! I did omit the saffron, firstly b/c they don't sell it at the superstore and secondly b/c it's $$$$. Anyway, it tasted just fine to me and my diners. I served it with mashed potatoes. I agree with the other comment about the cooking time being somewhat long. Mine came out a bit overdone, but tender and tasty nonetheless. I'm adding this one to my files!
I made this recipe in my crock pot. It is fantastic!! Very flavourful. Served over pappardelle.
