I made this on a cold, rainy, windy day at the beach. I wanted a hearty warming meal for friends. I,too, added additional wine and a bit more Hoisan Sauce, as well as some garlic cloves. I also made both potatoes and noodles. Everyone ravied and all had seconds.

Our family LOVED this recipe. I used a sirloin steak instead of a chuck roast...I am pretty sure any cut of beef would work, it becomes so tender after cooking. I also used beef broth and added some potatoes.

The sauce was too sweet for my family

This was so good. I added extra wine because I wanted more sauce and it turned out so flavorful. I served this with red potato's because I had them in the house but rice, or noodles of any kind will work great. I will make this again and again.
