    I used ends of beef tenderloin. Cooked for about 25 minutes more. The sauce has a nice color and deep flavor. Served over egg noodles.

    Really tasty broth, easy prep. Solid recipe.

    I made it ahead without adding pearl onions and mushrooms, but had to freeze it, then reheat before adding those. I used pre-cubed "beef stew", which was probably a mistake. The cooking time was not long enough; it needed at least 45 minutes longer. I think chuck would have needed extra time also. My meat was somewhat dry and stringy (that "pre-cut beef stew"). Overall, the flavor was very good.

    Delicious and easy. A great make ahead for dinner parties. My friends request it at least once a year.

    This is delicious and as Ina states even better the next day. A favorite that my family and friends request regularly.

    The best! I cooked it in the oven at 300 for 30 minutes then 275 . 250 was not hot enough. It is perfect!

    This is essentially the same recipe as Julia Child's with a lot fewer steps. The end result was a delicious, rich stew that would be a perfect meal for a dinner party.

    Ina has all the components right here, and as per usual she has a few smart shortcuts that yield a very nice result. The only reason I didn't give this one a 5 is because the meat was a bit tough and I suspect this might have to do with the shorter cooking time. I did use pre cubed stewing beef and perhaps that was it. Either way, it is a very flavourful recipe that is a bit quicker than some bourguignon recipes, so I might try it with the recommended chuck and see if that helps.
