I made this tonight for the first time for dinner for my husband and 13 year old. It is a little labor intensive and does take nearly two hours, but it is well worth it. I always read the reviews of recipes on here prior to making them and I am glad I did follow several other reviewers' suggestions to halve the red pepper flakes. I put in just a teaspoon and it still had plenty of kick. Next time I will use just a half as my teenager doesn't care for that much spice. I did marinate the meat in pinot noir for 30 minutes. Next time I will do at least two hours if not four just to further enhance the flavors. Honestly, it was 5 stars with just 30 minutes so if that is all the time you have, it still comes out delicious. Additionally, I will probably simmer it for more than an hour to thicken the sauce or add just a pinch of corn starch at the end as I prefer more of a gravy consistency. All in all, this recipe is a keeper and can be tweaked for everyone's liking. Thanks so much for the great recipe.
