Rated 5 out of 5 by from Delicious After searching for a recipe this caught my eye. I am so glad I tried it. So delicious and the entire family loved it! I did use the wine and I served it over egg noodles.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tasty Very tasty. I cut down the seasoning to 2.5 TBSP and it was perfect. My 6 yr old loved it. I plan to add more veggies next time, maybe even carrots, celery, etc as it seemed a little meat heavy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of the best things I Have ever eaten! This is amazing!!! Even the kids loved it. I wasn't sure about the artichokes but it is amazing! I used the wine, and love the depth of flavor. Tastes like something from a pricey Italian restaurant.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So good! Wasn't too sure about this one, but it was at the top of the freezer. Wow. It is so good. I did not include mushrooms or wine. I made it again 2 days later- it was that good. Put it over egg noodles the second time, I liked it better than the stroganoff recipes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great recipe! Husband was tentative about the artichoke hearts, but he couldn't even taste them. He lately said I could make it again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very versatile I tried this both ways today. It is delicious!!! I used boneless, skinless chicken thighs. Loved it with the beef too. This would be easy to make vegetarian. Just use portabella mushrooms in place of the meat.
