Easy Beef Bourguignon vs Traditional

I'm a novice at cooking, as I type I'm watching a very well respected cooking show (not sure if it's ok here to name which one) anyway they are showing a method where there is absolutely no stove top searing done. Basically everything gets roasted first then you make a roux, strain it and then braise it. Then the host goes on and on about what a pain it is to sear it all separately. So I'm curious, how many of you professionals consider that fine to do or how many of you wouldn't dare do that and why? another short cut, they used frozen and peeled pearl onions instead of using fresh ones that they blanched and peeled. Thanks

Well, I'm not asking if I should make it that way, I'm asking how many pros here would or wouldn't and why?
