I used red wine vinegar instead of red wine in my stew how can I fix it?

I mistakenly used red wine vinegar instead of red wine in my beef stew. It has a sour taste to it. Is there a way that I can fix this to neutralize the flavor? I was thinking that maybe I could add more beef bullion to it, but I'm not sure that will work.

One of the original Silver Palate cookbooks contained a recipe for pot pies (beef, I believe, not the more interesting) that called for a dose of red wine vinegar. I prepared the recipe without question, because why not, right? It was dreadful. Inedible. A failed experiment and a lesson learned. I would suggest that your add, in small increments tasting all the while, some balsamic vinegar. It probably sounds counterintuitive, but aged balsamic vinegar is sweet. Quite sweet. And it may save your lovely stew.

Thanks for your reply. I tried the balsamic but it didn't quite work. But, I took your idea and tried A-1 and barbeque sauce. The barbeque sauce worked the best. Thank you.
