This was great for my kids as my son don't like carrots but he ate them because the wine and herbs added the flavour. The beef was nice and soft, all in all fantastic-03 Aug 2010
Used different ingredients.I used a dry red Pinot Noir wine and instead of fresh Parsley I used 1 tbsp of dried Thyme.-03 Aug 2010
It is a little time consuming but it was worth it. I believe the previous person used phyllo dough instead of puff pastry. I used the puff pastry and I also added 1/2 cup beef broth. Then I added 2 tbls butter along with 1/4 cup cream. Gave it a richer flavor. Thanks-13 Sep 2002
