I have been enjoying this for a couple of days. This smelled heavenly and I have taken it to work with me for my lunch too. Mike didn’t have the vegetables and he felt the wine overpowered the beef when eaten alone. Once he put it with mixed beans and mashed potatoes he also liked the beef. I tried the beef alone and it was a bit strong by itself. Once I added it with the vegetables it was very good.

Place all vegetables into one plastic container with a lid. Make ground beef into one-inch size balls and place into another plastic container. Mix remaining ingredients and pour half over the ground beef and the other half over the vegetables.
