Normally the recipe calls for rump roast, but I use whatever I have. I just happened to have brought home a eye of round roast and was cutting it up for the freezer, so that is what I used. I also added the mushrooms because I like them. The classic recipe does not call for them. And as far as using red wine, the recipe is for beer, but it also works well with wine. Good eats!

I googled "carbonnade de boeuf" and noticed that your mushrooms seemed to be an extra. I like the idea of adding the 'shrooms. I had never heard of it before.

Oh man, those cajun "cabbage rolls" came out better than expected. That will be one to become a regular!
