    This was a difficult dish to make (time consuming), but well worth it! Very delicious.

    This was quite yummy and rich with complex flavors. A bit of prep work ahead of going into crockpot so make sure to plan for it.

    Didn’t have beef, so we used 4 large chicken breasts, cut up, and a pound of Italian sausage. We also added more liquid (tomatoes and stock). At the end, we used coconut flour to thicken into a gravy.
