Dana, this was delicious! It was very easy to prepare, smelled great while it was simmering, and my family of 3 ate the WHOLE thing. I made a few little changes: used lots of fresh garlic instead of the powder (I sauteed it with the onion), dusted the beef in flour before browning (just a personal preference) and used just 2T of soy & 2T of worcestershire and made up the liquid difference with 1/4 cup red wine (Merlot). I added some mushrooms, too. It was absolutely fantastic with lots of tender beef and tasty gravy. I will be making this a lot; thanks for posting it!

Dana, EXCELLENT! I also used fresh garlic cooked with the onion. WE LOVED THIS! Goes great with broccoli! We did use 2 cups of water.
