Excellent Rich Flavor. Easy to prepare. I followed the recipe using a Cabernet Savignon and made the following changes. 1. only used one onion (thats all i had on hand, but thats all you need) 2. I used 1 jar of siliced shitake mushrooms(also all I had on hand). 3. I did add about 3 tsp of minced garlic during the browning as others suggested. 4. added 1/2 tsp of bay leaves and doubled the black pepper. I served this over egg noodles and it got rave reviews. The only reason i didnt give it 5 stars is it is a really soupy finished product and i even tried to thicken it w/ addt'l flour. but the flavor alone makes this a definite keeper and I will just work on reducing the liquid more next time. Oh, I also used cheap, cubed stew meat, and it was fork tender, and very very good. I did do the stovetop simmer as written in the recipe, but I can see how this would be a very easy transistion into a slow cooker recipe. Thanks for a easy and tasty recipe Faith!
