Update: I just had to say, I like this more every time I make it! The only addition I make is some garlic and mushrooms, and more wine than called for. It's the best beef stew I've ever had. Hand's down! Original review: WOW! This was delicious! I followed the recipe almost exactly. I used a little less stew meat (round steaks I had in the freezer, chopped up) and onion (2 instead of 3) and more carrots. I added button mushrooms about an hour and a half before the end of the cooking time. I didn't have beef/onion soup mix, just regular onion for dip and such, so I added a teastpoon of instant beef bullion to it and the water. I used Cabernet Sauvignon for the wine as it's what I had. Otherwise, I followed as close as I could. It smelled wonderful cooking and tasted even better. My only regret is I didn't think to bake a loaf of crusty french bread to go with it. This will be my go-to stew recipe from now on!
