I really enjoyed making this dish, I prepared everything the day before and left it in the fridge over night and my husband put it on first thing in the morning on low. Unfortunatly it didnt cook all the veg being oon low all day, so i have learnt to start on high for 3ish hours then turn it to low. But recipie was spot on although i added carrots and more wine!

It was a little saucy and the wine taste was a little faint. The wine marinade smelled amazing, would in future just add more red wine. I would also add 1 tablespoon of corn starch to give the sause a more velvety texture.

The receipe is yummy, added the instructed 1 cup of wine & found that to be sufficient. However, I feel, like others, that other veggies were due so I added baby carrots. Also, it would have been nice to know exactly which "first seven ingredients" as I am such a novice cook that I need explicit instructions. Also, an explanation of the sliced onions would have been nice..were they suppose to be sauteed then go in the slow cooker too? Also, I found that 5 1/2 hours on low was sufficient. My family loved it & it was a chance for me to move out of my cooking comfort zone.

This is a wonderful base for the best stew ever! I did adjust the wine from 1C to 2C.The trick is to reduce the marinate, saute the vggies from the marinate and spices along with the mushrooms and searing the beef time was about 6 hours. will be a family favorite for sure!!!

Great recipe, thanks! Made it for weekend family dinner. And yes, 1 cup of wine is more than enough for 2 pounds of beef. Besides, fresh mushrooms provided lots of juice as well. Folks who gave it so low rating: it is not author's fault that you don't read the recipe carefully or don't know how much food you need to feed your family.

Novice here, but do you really marinate the onions with the beef? And do you set aside when browning beef, and add again into slow cooker? Thanks!

very very tasty! My husband hates mushrooms, so i took those out and added baby carrots, frozen peas, and 2 small potatoes.

Would this comfortably feed six persons? and does the one cup red wine suffice in a 6.5 litre slow cooker?

well - am going to follow but seems 1 cup wine is just covering my slow cooker and the meat is piled much higher - will watch it and keep you informed !

Fantastic recipe which my children and husband loved. Cooked it on high for 4 hours and low for an hour and it was perfect. You don't need any more marinade there is plenty. I added carrots and mushrooms also.

This is a great recipe. Made it last weekend for friends and everyone loved it. Next time, I'd add potatoes and/or carrots.

I guess I must be missing something as well. I don't understand how one cup of wine (the only liquid in the recipe) can possibly equate to enough marinade to cover.
  Reviewed by Honehe
Absolutely yummy :) Easy to do - I suggest marinating over night and preparing veggies in advance if doing this before going to work.

Lovely dish. Perfect for the cold winter nights.

because you failed to read directions, this poor recipe was underrated

If you re-read the ingredients, you just might see red wine there.

How on earth can you make a beef bourguignon with out using any red wine??? Bourguignon = Burgundy = Red wine. If no red wine, this is just a beef stew!!!
