This was really good!!! My husband told me 2 or 3 times that he liked it. The worcestershire sauce adds a delicious richness in this dish. Be sure to keep a watchful eye on this when it is under the broiler, it could get a little darker then you want. I can't wait to make this again for guest someday. I know they will flip over the flavor. Made for *Gimme 5 Recipe Tag 2009* game

This is a nice change of pace from the typical beef-stew-style meals. It seems to be the perfect blend of ingredients. I was disappointed, though, that the onions really didn't carmelize as I had hoped, so it did not have quite the appearance of French Onion Soup. It was still quite tasty, though!
