Didn't Live Up To Expectations

I followed this recipe exactly. It smelled grate while cooking with the fresh rosemary. However, it tasted so bland. I made a small amount of polenta and made egg noodles. I had to doctor it up considerably to make it edible. Will never make again

Easy to make
Tastes like Home

LOVE this. I admit it took a fair amount of time to make, but the end result was so worth it. And I highly recommend making it as is, including the homemade polenta. The way it combines with the stew is just heavenly.

Delicious flavor
Surprised this is for 8!

Thought this was great! Served over mashed potatoes instead of polenta but didnt think it went far enough for 8 people. Used only 6 thighs and it more or less was a serving for two.

Great recipe

I made this without the cornmeal.
This dish is delicious


The rosemary makes this dish smells so delicious. I kept sniffing it while I was cooking. :) In all, it's very tasty! I didn't have all the ingredients so I skipped a few like: dry wine and polenta (step 5). Also, I used 1 can of dice tomato since I have it on hand. The result is still yummy. It was served with rice and salad!

Will definitely make it again and again.
