“This is a "killer" beef dish! I have made this using a small prime rib roast cut into cubes and added in the ribs bones also. You will need 2 (750-ml) bottles of red wine and brandy for this, how could this be bad LOL! or just reduce the wine and add in more beef broth, but it will not have the same flavor! This complete dish can be made 1 day ahead, and really it should be, as it tastes even better the following day! Serve this with crusty garlic bread.”
