I don't know what the true definition of this dish is except delicious! The meat was tender and flavorful the sauce (gravy) rich with layers of flavors. I personally loved the veggies and really appreciate the complexity they add to the dish. The aroma of the simmering pot was unbelievable! Thank you Leslie!! Read More

The only problem I have with this recipe is the name. It made me believe it would have a richer more interesting taste but it ended up tasting exactly like a typical beef stew. Many stew recipes are much simpler and yield a very similar result. Read More

The previous reviewers are missing the point which is that this is delicious! Maybe it's not a "true" beef burgundy but who cares? My husband who usually doesn't like soups and stews absolutely loves this! Read More

Too much like beef stew with the potatoes and carrots in the dish. Not a classic beef and burgundy dish. Read More

I cooked this recipe for 27 people to celebrate a 90th birthday for my boyfriends Mom. I had only met his family once before. This dish won me lots of praise and thank you's from everyone. Leftovers were actually stolen! I overheard my guy telling someone that it was the best food he had ever eaten. I will cook this for my family the next time I am having them for dinner. This dish will impress your friends. Read More

A beautiful Beef Burgundy. As good as I have had even in France. The meat was very tender it also pays to use a good wine. I used the same as we were drinking with the dinner. Instead of adding the potatoes I made a creamy mash and it went extremely well with this dish. You will enjoy this dish very much. Read More

The beef was so tender. The whole house smelled invitingly delicious. The sauce was eagerly sopped up with French bread. Everyone is looking forward to another batch. Read More

It was very delicious and relatively easy to make. Would definetly make it again. I didn't give it five stars just because it was tasty but was lacking something. I can't put my finger on it but what ever that little something was it does not change the fact that this was a delicious dish. Read More

This was very good! I skipped sauteeing all the veggies and only did the onions and mushrooms together. I thought there would be way too much butter otherwise. Besides that I didn't deviate it was wonderful and I could definitely taste the burgundy! Read More
