Excuse me, when do you add the burgundy, and shouldn't you brown the beef first?

Yummy. My husband liked the stew sauce. It was very tasty.

The meat was extremely tender in this recipe. However, the stew needed more seasonings. I may try pre-seasoned crushed tomoatoes and add other seasonings such as oregano and basil next time.

I didn't like this very much. The gravy had a weird consistency, it didn't have much flavor to it, and my carrots were still a little crunchy.
