  1. Very tasty recipe. I can’t say I followed it step by step, I’m more of a bung it all in the pot and see what happens type of cook. So I’m sure if you followed the full instructions it can only taste better. Perfect filling meal.

  2. This is yum! I reduced crushed tomatoes to 1 1/2 cans, added 2 tblsp worcestershire sauce and only a pinch of paprika. Also used tea towel trick for the last hour. Delicious!
