This was amazing! I replaced half the salt with some onion and garlic salt, halved the butter, doubled all the vegetables, added two potatoes and celery stalks, used 10 oz of fresh mushrooms, and skipped the canned onions. I also added 1/2 cup of vegetable broth in lieu of canned mushroom liquid. I used a quality bordeaux wine, and it came out just delicious - the beef was incredibly tender, there was plenty of gravy, and it smelled incredible. I think reviewers who complained that it was too dry must have forgotten to cook it covered, and those who said it was too "winey" likely used a poor quality or inappropriate type of wine. According to Julia Child's recipe, you should only use a Beaujolais, Cote du Rhone, Bordeaux-St. Emilion, Burgundy, or Chianti.
