Onions and mushrooms naturally complement rich beef. Use cremini mushrooms in the ragout for a more robust flavor. The beef is so tender! I served this with a baked sweet potato and a spinach salad. It should be served with a nice red wine or rose - since I am not a connoisseur of wines I can't say too much. Cooking Light Magazine, November 2008 Edition.This was posted on 11/05/2008.
