Okay, this isn't even out of the oven yet but I have tasted it and it is divine! Having never made beef stew I was not anticipating great sucess the first time around but this recipe is the bomb! I followed it exactly except that the store was out of onion soup mix (?) so I substituted a packet of McCormick Beef Stew seasoning. Everything else I followed. I could not get this all into the crock pot so I had to transfer to my roasting pan and I cooked it all day at 230 degrees. Let me tell you , the house smells sooo good! I personally liked the flavor better before adding the wine, but it still is very, very good. I also find it to be a bit peppery but again, that's just personal taste and it does not detract overall from the stew's flavor. I think I am going to add some peas as well. I can tell already that I will make this time and again. Thanks for sharing this wonderful 'comfort' food recipe. Now, time to pop the french bread into the oven.....
