Yummy and rich, loved the flavor of the spices and wine, The gravy is Deliciuos with sour dough bread. DH says the recipe is a keeper. Very easy to make, love things that are cooked in the oven. Thank you Rita for another great recipe.

Awesome recipe! I forgot to buy a red pepper so I didn't use one, just used extra onion. Also, I added about 3/4 cup of brandy. Delicious!!! Will make again.

Oh my! Well worth the wait! This is a new favorite! The only change I made was to add a couple of beef bouillon cubes to the red wine. I used a Cabernet Sauvignon. Next time, I would go ahead and add a couple cups of water or extra wine because after 2-1/2 hours, the liquid was almost gone and it was getting pretty dry on top. I served it with my favorite rustic French bread, http://www.food.com/recipe/traditional-artisan-style-baguette-rustic-french-bread-391163. Thank you so much!

I cannot describe how delicious this turned out! It was so easy to put together and had a really good robust flavor. When I have the time to put into it, I am going to attempt Julia Child's recipe for this dish.

I have made the original Julie Childs recipe before and it takes hours of preparation, but this this was nice and easy and very tasty. It made enough that I could freeze extra for another night.

This had such great flavor! I just subbed a couple things. I used boiler onions instead of pearl, (cheaper), and cut them in half. I couldn't find fresh button mushrooms so I just used the standard white ones and cut in half. I couldn't believe how easy this all went together and how flavorful it was. Thanks for posting! :)

We thought this was very tasty! I used 1 cup red wine and 1 cup water bkz my kids too complain about the "taste" of wine in food. This ratio fooled them and still added alot of flavor. Thanks for posting!
