Wow. I followed this recipe instructions exactly, except for the fact that I had no idea where to find cloves, and I don't personally like mushrooms. Yes, it takes a while, but you can reasonably break down tasks simultaneously. So that not much prep time is needed, and much of your dishes and waste are already dealt with before the meal is prepared. This meal was incredible. It's *better* than most restaurants. I used a stock pot for the first step, and a dutch oven for steps three through six. In hindsight, I wish I had used chicken broth instead of water in step one. Even without, I am telling you this stew is incredible. The combination of herbs is good. One set of herbs (tarragon, rosemary, herbes de Provence) reminds me a little of absinthe for some reason, while the others added plenty of spiciness. I highly recommend this meal. It deserves WAY more reviews. It is spicy hot as some noted, but not overly so. If one doesn't want it, they could probably leave out the cayenne pepper. I think the cayenne pepper makes it perfect, however.
