Rather than using cubes of stewing beef, I made a roast using this. It turned out delicious! I used what was left of the broth and roast the following day, just adding a little more water and some beef bouillon to convert it into a French Dip, which is one of my family's favorites. It worked perfectly converted as well. Thank you for sharing such a delightful recipe Robin!
I doubled the wine, added some flour to thicken the broth and added a couple carrots and some beef stock. Tasted better than earlier samplings.
