  1. Great recipe. I did leave out the dry onion soup – just way to much sodium for me. But I added more diced onions and 1 tablespoon Mrs. Dash Original Seasoning.. With that change it was fantastic.

  2. I can only assume that the worcheshire sauce goes in with the other ingredients. I added it then…making it tonight so in about 30 minutes I will see if I get a thumbs up from my kiddo or not to make again…

  3. 3 stars
    Recipe was very bland. I added extra garlic, herbs de province, pepper ,salt, etc but still was bland. Will add hearty burgandy wine, carrots and pearl onions next time I make it.

    1. The wine certainly can’t hurt.
      I’m a close follower of the Justin Wilson philosophy that one should “taste” the wine every few minutes to insure it remains of finest quality during the cooking process.
      I recommend having a back up bottle on hand, in case of an emergency.

    2. I’ve cut up onions red ( half of a left over one I used for salsa tonight) and yellow – garlic- carrots – celery- mushrooms – or…first thing In the morning ..heading to my favorite butcher …to buy . A chuck blade steak or two …I can cut it up in bigger chunks and the fat in the steak makes it juicy after cooking for hours….. I’ll post tomorrow night..see what my hubby and do think ..thank you

  4. I just came across your recipe & it looks very similar to the one I just “created”, with a few exceptions. I threw in cream of mushroom soup, (love the flavor, can’t tolerate the texture), onions,
    onion soup mix, onion gravy, garlic, thyme, salt, pepper, tomato paste, white wine (didn’t have red), Worcester sauce & plum jam -(found it in the pantry and thought, “Why not?”, lol). Wish I had found your site BEFORE I began cooking it! Have bookmarked & saved! Thanks so much for sharing your recipes! ??

  7. I sauteed the mushrooms and onions in the pan after the beef. Than deglazed the pan with 1 cup red wine and reduced the beef broth to 2 cups. Added alot of flavor

  8. Delish! If I may, Stew Meat is third class mystery meat. At the least, a roast or tenderloin cut up adds heaps and layers of flavor and you don’t get that organ meat bite.
