Great recipe. I used cream of celery instead of cream of mushroom soup and left out additional mushrooms. Next time I would cut the wine by 1/2 cup and consider cooking the potatoes separately. Although they absorbed a nice flavor from the wine, they were very purple!! Makes fabulous au jus/ gravy and is excellent over noodles.
- 2 cups cabernet sauvignon wine (or more! It's good for you!)
- 1⁄2 cup water or 1⁄2 cup beef broth
- 1 (1 1/4 ounce) envelope dry onion soup mix
- 1 tablespoon brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon dried rosemary or 1 teaspoon fresh rosemary
- 1 medium onion, chopped
- 4 medium carrots, washed, pared & sliced
- 1 garlic clove (or table spoon crushed)
