I love dishes like this that are almost like a comfort food. This recipe is so easy to put together and the end result is an incredible surprise. I have made this several times and always get rave reviews about it. For those wishing to save a little bit of time, I can make a couple of suggestions. First off, I would cut the stew meat into smaller pieces. I do this anyways to remove a lot of the fat/gristle and make the bites much easier for the kids to handle. I NEVER use the stew meat as it comes in the package. The other thing is I made this completely on the stove and simmered it instead of doing the multiple steps of putting the beef in a pan, cooking it, putting it into a casserole dish and then cooking the veggies/wine mixture and baking. I just put the coated beef into the pan with butter, add the onions, garlic, cook for a bit, add the mushrooms, carrots, herbs, and then add the wine. Bring it to a boil, cover and lower it to simmer. This usually cooks in about 1-1 1/2 hours or so. The meat is nicely tender. We like to serve it over mashed potatoes!
