    Wonderful, Wonderful!!!! This was a great recipe! I have never made this type of dish before and it turned out great! I used a London broil as my meat; it was a very nice cut I might add! I did not use fresh parsley, all I had on had was dried, but it didn't matter, it was still great! I have put this in my personal cookbook! I just want to add to anyone who wants to try this, please remember this and make it a rule of thumb, my mother always told me, never cook with a wine that you wouldn't drink, because when the alcohol cooks off, all you have left is the flavor, so please, make sure you use a good wine. I recommend CK Mondavi Cabernet Sauvignon. It is a great wine and reasonably priced.  -  11 Jan 2003  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This is very, very good! Be sure to deglaze your pan with about 1/2 cup of red or white wine after browning the meat and the veggies. You want every little bit of flavour! The house smelled amazing  -  17 Dec 2005  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I have made this twice and it is wonderful! It is very easy to prepare and actually better than the same dish at our local French restaurant. I have seen several comments about adding beef broth to replace some of the time wine. Although, that may not be a bad idea I think it is important what type of red wine you use. This recipe originally in France calls for a dark burgandy wine which cooks away nicely. I love the deep rich flavor and would not advise a Chianti for instance or Zinfindel.  -  02 Mar 2003  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
