I did not add the wine because I dont usually keep any on hand and the kids swear they can taste it if they know it is in any recipe I make. So I used beef broth with a little bit of worchestershire in its place. This was super good, wonderful comfort food. Served on top of some mashed potatoes. Thanks for the recipe!

Great recipe. I scaled it up to serve 12, and had been planning to use part beef and part venison. I discovered upon thawing that my venison was actually ground, so that wasn't going to work. So I ended up using half chicken, and it actually worked out. The chicken pieces got all coated in the rich brown gravy so you could hardly even tell. i used 2 packages (10 or 12 oz) of frozen white pearl onions and more carrot. I made this for having 11 family members over and needed something to make ahead (made 3 days ahead) and that wouldn't require much action during the pre-dinner time. All I had to do was slowly warm in the oven, and just cook up a great big pot of egg noodles at the last minute. We had no leftovers (which was kind of unfortunate). I made this in my cast iron Dutch oven and it was just a nice hearty cauldron of good food. I am planning now to make it again, just for us, and this time there will be leftovers. Probably we will do it with noodles once and then maybe just with crusty bread. I will probably increase the liquid slightly to be sure there is enough gravy. Although it may be that my experience the first time, with the chicken, meant that more of the liquid got absorbed by the chicken. In any case, I thank you for the recipe and for allowing me to have a successful large dinner gathering.

Amazing! The beef was so tender and moist. I do like a little more wine and less flour though much like the recipe at http://amodernwomansguide.com/?p=668

This was a great dish as we had leftover red wine. I used more than the 2cups of red wine, and used bouquet garni. The beef was so tender and was very yummy.

This was delicious, left bout the peppers as the kids aren't keen on them and added 1/4 cup of bacon stock instead of bacon and came up really nice. Winner with the family will make again.
