      This was very good. It had a robust flavor, but we thought everything took away from the flavor of the beef itself a bit. It was still very good. I served it with buttered egg noodles. I would make again, but I'd leave the carrots out because carrots are yucky. I'd also add some mushrooms. Made and Reviewed for PRMR - Thanks! :)
