The "original" recipe from the late '50's and early '60's regular cookbook is much easier (less ingredients and NO wine!), and is our much preferred go-to. And instead of all the spices, just one bay leaf, plus salt and pepper is used. Geez! No one can ever guess how fuss-free the original one is. Nice try, though.
