I wanted to try something new with beef, so I created this recipe. Now, I prepared this entree a few times a month. The sauce adds wonderful flavor, and it is versatile enough to go with just about any meat.—Bernadette Bennett, Waco, Texas

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 12, 2014

"Excellent and not that hard to make, even for a novice in the kitchen. Very much like the French dish, "Boeuf Bourguignon" without all the time spent waiting for it to cook in the oven--and I've made that one a number of times too! I did double the corn starch and water amounts to make the sauce a tad thicker; other than that, it was a go as written."
