“I love this recipe. I'm posting it as I make it - I add more beef broth (not a huge wine fan, so I prefer the beef taste). However, if you prefer a stronger wine flavor, just use 8 oz of beef broth instead (that was the original recipe amount). I also put more green onions, but that's just because I love them! Really easy to make, too! Oh, and COMPLETE guess on the servings and cook/prep time.”
