This recipe does have A LOT of steps, and IS not just throwing a bunch of ingredients together...however, it is worth it, so be sure to plan ahead. For the marinade I skipped the brandy, simply b/c I did not have any. I doubt you would notice. I didn't use a lb. of bacon. I used a couple Tbsp of REAL bacon bits. Omitted mushrooms, simply b/c I am not a fan. I did add large chunks of carrots into the marinade and let them cook with the meat. The other change I made was, instead of placing in a 9X13 pan, it went into my 6 qt crock pot on low and I let it cook on low until beef was tender. (approx 5-6 hrs) Amazing. You may choose to thicken sauce if you like a thick gravy. It was fine for me without doing that. I thought it was even better the second day. :)
