Absolutely Spectacular
June 7, 2015
We made this for dinner last night and it was absolutely amazing. Wonderful richness and tremendous depth of flavor. We tasted both a Chianti and a super Tuscan with it and both worked very well (the super Tuscan was also the wine we used in the recipe). We followed the recipe exactly, although used 1% milk and omitted the olive oil at the beginning. It still came out splendidly. It was a bit thin at the end (perhaps due to our lower-fat milk), so we thickened it to our liking with some arrowroot. It worked perfectly. This is an *authentic* world-class meal that takes no time at all; I don't completely understand other reviewers comments that it takes a long time. All the mise en place and pre-slow-cooker steps took less than an hour. We had it in the slow-cooker on high for approximately 4 hours, and based on how good it was after that duration, I would imagine it only gets better with more time. Next time we will try a few more.
Pros: Easy, Impressive, Good Value, Will Make Again, Yield, Adaptable, Appearance, Authentic, wow factor

Great sauce
April 19, 2015
I followed the recipe except I used italian sausage for ground pork and bacon for pancetta (couldn't find any). OMG so good. This sauce takes time to prep so worth it. I also made pasta with Philips pasta maker. There were no left overs!
Pros: Impressive, Will Make Again
Cons: Lengthy

Love This Recipe
March 22, 2014
We've made this maybe a dozen times BUT never in the slow cooker. Usually cook in the Le Creuset or a HUGE deep skillet and alter the prep accordingly, and cook for about an hour on the stove. I've read/made many, many Bolognese recipes over the years, but this has become my go-to fave for the proportions, ease, and depth of flavor. I also cheat and use San Marzano crushed tomatoes
Pros: Easy, Kid-Friendly, Will Make Again, yummy!
