      Thanks, I was just getting ready to post this, but checked for it first. I have been making this for quite some time now. I took the advice of other reviewers from the Epicurious site and add 8 large whole cloves of garlic in with the shallots. Sometimes I add a few sprigs of fresh rosemary. And if you can't find any good tomatoes, I have subbed diced can tomatoes, along with 2 T. of brown sugar. It's also great if you can cook it a day ahead, so that you can skim the fat before reheating and everything has time to meld together. The longer you simmer this, the more the veggies fall apart and incorporate into the sauce, try not to open the lid to see how all is going, LOL. If the sauce gets too thick, you can always add a bit more wine or stock. I usually serve this with garlic mashed potatoes. This is one FANTASTIC recipe, thanks for posting!

      Very easy and oh so flavorful. The only changes I made were to leave the scallions a bit crisp in the sauteing and to use regular dijon instead of coarse. Thanks for posting this great dish!

      Both hubby and I agreed that this is SUPERLICIOUS! I appreciated that it was very easy to prepare with few ingredients. I may try this method of cooking with a pot roast and just add some beef bones to get that great flavor in the sauce. There was lots of sauce left over, so I'll thicken it and serve it with mashed potatoes. Do give this one a try if you have some beef short ribs. It is a wonderful recipe! (I mixed some regular Dijon with the whole grain mustard - about 1/2 and 1/2.)<br/><br/>I made this a second time, and it was still delicious. I used the right kind of mustard, but didn't have fresh tomatoes. Instead I used 1 1/2 cans (15 oz.) of diced tomatoes. They worked out great! I even took a picture.
