This is a staple in our house. I've served it to guests several times with great reviews. The absence of potatoes is one of the things that we like about it since we limit our carbs at dinner. I skip the rosemary. I've tried it without the wine, but prefer it with (I use 1 can beef broth plus about 1/2 cup of wine; no water).

Great recipe for a nice winter stew. I usually cut back a little on the wine. Makes for a very nice meal with the family, not sure I would make for guests. That said, it's been a favorite for years.

I took the other readers advice and used 2 cups beef broth and only a 1/2 c red wine and it turned out great! I didn't have any rosemary on hand so I added some Thyme and Marjoram which worked. I thought this recipe was pretty meaty so next time I am going to use less meat or increase the other ingredients. I simmered mine for 20 minutes instead of 45 and it worked great, I kept tasting the meat to see if it was getting tender. My boyfriend loved it, definitely going to make it again!
