Rated 5 out of 5 by Lee Ann K from Big hit with ONE change! I thought this recipe said RED WINE, not red wine VINEGAR. So I made it with 1/2c red wine intead of the vinegar and water. Its so delicious! I've even made it in my instant pot :) 25 min high with 15 min natural pressure release and the sweet potatoes in a steamer basket instead of in the liquid (they turn to mush otherwise but still great!)

Rated 5 out of 5 by MDWts from tender beef, great flavor! I halved the recipe since there are only 2 of us. Turned out perfectly! The beef was so tender. Keeping the potatoes on too is key so they don't get too mushy. Those were cooked perfectly too (6 hours on high total).

Rated 2 out of 5 by Krissiev from Didn't work for us... Not sure if I did something wrong, but this turned out super spicy... The separate bag of potatoes also leached in liquid somehow which turned the potatoes black, so it looked unappetizing as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Simplydi from A total hit!!! Just made this a few nights ago. Thawed it out and popped it in the slow-cooker. Our family LOVED it!! Will be a staple in our home. I did add more than 1 tsp of Garlic Garlic as we love garlic! And some Garlic Pepper Seasoning on top was fabulous too if you want a bit of a bite.
