    The beef was tender. It was a little heavy on the celery. Flavor was okay.

    This is probably the best recipe I've made. I browned the sirloin in a skillet separately from the vegetables so that I could cook the vegetables plenty long so they'd be cooked through, then I combined them all in the Dutch oven. Definitely use sirloin steak and simmer long as it will turn out very tender. I served over the delicious Onion-Roasted Potatoes recipe I found in Taste of Home too.
