The Hoisin Sauce was a pleasant surprise - and to think I have only used Hoisin in Chinese cooking until now. I used Beef Better Than Bouillon and water to make the beef broth, as I don't like wine. I did upgrade the meat to top sirloin. Hubby does not like lean meats such as sirloin, but he liked this enough to say he takes back all the bad things he has said about sirloin in the past. While eating dinner tonight, I kept thinking how good this would taste with mashed potatoes, so I will try that next. I can hardly wait for next time!
Made this exactly as written, great comfort food!!
I admit that I cheated and simmered this on the stovetop; it was just too hot to use the oven. Next time, and there will be a next time, I will bake it. The hoisin sauce adds just the right amount of uniqueness. Thanks for posting! Made for Everyday's a Holiday Tag.
This is a great dish, rich and comforting! I made just as directed. I don't usually care for onions so i "ate around them" but I enjoyed the sweet flavor that the pearl onions gave this dish. Served this over ditalini pasta and really enjoyed - thanks for sharing the recipe!
Delicious. Love the pearl onions in this dish. Not as over powering as regular onions. I don't care for baby carrots when they are cooked, so I used regular instead. Cooking time is spot on. :)
