A great beef and noodles dish, so easy to prepare in your crockpot. The beef gets soooo tender from the long cooking process. Very good!

I followed this recipe exactly and found it to be very bland and fairly runny. I expected something much richer. So I added more wine (I used a pinot noir; the driest of the burgundys), more garlic,salt, worcestershire and added a bunch of beef bouillon crystals. It was better, but still not great. It got such great reviews from everyone else that I went back thru the recipe to see what I did wrong, but I did it all as written. Sorry, I really wanted to love this. UPDATE: One of the reviews said it was much better the next day so I reheated leftovers and OMG it was perfect! Thick and rich and absolutely awesome! I am changing from 3 to 4 stars.

I made this tonight for dinnerand had to write the review immediately. It was delicious. I followed the recipe other than I added 16 oz of beef broth. That could be why my sauce was too thin. I did use 1 Tbsp of cornstarch and also used a 1/2 cup of potato water to thicken it. Was much better. DSO said he didn't think it was spicy enough, I was speechless. but after another bite was fine with it. (This is coming from a man who never ate anything with any kind of spice, his ex-wife did'nt know how nor cared to cook and he cooks only simple plain things.) I will definitely be making this again. I thank you Sue for a great recipe.
