I have been wanting to make Julia Child's version for a long time, but every time I read the recipe I change my mind. Found this wonderful recipe and had to try!! It is outstanding!!!! I fed 7 adults with this recipe and had enough leftovers for one more serving. My only alterations to this recipe was to add about a tablespoon of tomato paste and a cup of beef broth. To die for!! Now one of my favorites!!

This was a great recipe. I've made Julia Child's recipe and this rivals it, with less prep work. I overcoked it a bit but I just made sure there was enough sauce to help cover. Our company seemed to really enjoy t, as did my kids! The next day we ran out of wine to moisten and I secretly added a little diet soda. Shhh... It was absolutely fantastic! This is now my go-to recipe for Beouf Bourguinon!

What a delicious recipe. I couldn't find the frozen pearl onions. My grocery store only carries then around the holidays. I know I will stock up on the onions then. I used and extra 4 onions. I did add and 1 cup of water and 2 beef bouillon cubes. I served it with mashed potatoes and a salad. Everyone said 5 stars. The flavor is rich and delicious. This recipe is a keeper. Thanks for sharing.

Yummy. I cut up a sirloin roast to get 2 meals out of it, used baby carrots and cabernet wine. The kitchen smelled great while it was cooking. Thanks for sharing Rita. Made for ZWT8 France.

Every bite makes me grateful to be experiencing such an exemplary dish. I didn't know stew meat could get so tender.

This was a delicious beef stew. No reason to skimp on the red wine. And the little onions are the best.

Unreal... amazing... spectacular! I have made twice already! As others mentioned, I used pearl onions and added some beef broth. I also added some water and didn't use a full 2 cups of wine. This is a recipe I will keep and pass on for generations!

I made this last night for a dinner party and it was a hit! Very delicious! I did use frozen pearl onions (thawed and drained) as I did not want to peel all those tiny guys. It turned out just as good! Thank you for an excellent recipe! It was worth the time and energy!
