Reviewed Italian Braised Beef with Root Vegetables

Saturday, Feb 23, 2013 on Cooking Channel

"This really was fantastic. I would make the sauce the day before next time and cook the meat even longer the next day. I like the meat to be fall apart tender and it wasn't even after 4 hours of cooking. I might even think to try this dish with beef short ribs next time. I served this over fresh herb and roasted garlic orzo. Very good"

"FANTASTIC!!! This was the best ever eggplant parmesan dish I have ever had!!! I have tried many recipes over the years, and now that I have tried this one - I'll never look to another! You don't need a million ingredients for it to be fabulous, just a tasty sauce, eggplant, cheese and basil. Perfection."

"This was 'the bomb' as my family called it! I did everything the same exactly as written. So flavorful and well rounded nothing overpowers the other. The only 'problem' for me if you will was that next time I might double the marinade and reserve a full cup of it to make extra of that fantastic sauce! I served it with brown basmati and would have "

She starts the onions for the sauce before she browns the meat, so to replace this lack of beef deglazing flavor I put 1/2 cup ""
