I read over 100 reviews of this before I made it. As stew meat was $3.99 a pound, I chose a sirloin that was on sale for $2.99. I left out the canned onions, and used dried parsley. I watched it carefully and added more beef broth after about an hour. I also used one cup wine and one cup beef broth. Everyone loved it, but I will have to use more broth as it didn't have as much of the yummy gravy as we wanted. I served it over noodles, but with more gravy, it would be great over mashed potatoes. Next time I will use more mushrooms, fresh rather than canned, and saute with the onions and carrots. I will use two cans beef broth, and one cup wine, and I will cut the beef into smaller pieces. Check after the first hour, and about 45 minutes after that until done. Don't let it cook dry!
