      Beef Bourguignon

      (Burgundy Beef)

      3 pounds boneless chuck roast

      3 ounces (3-4 slices) bacon

      1/4 cup flour

      1 14-oz to 16-oz can beef broth

      1 1/2 cup dry red wine (cabernet sauvignon or merlot)

      1 bay leaf

      1 teaspoon thyme

      1/4 teaspoon pepper

      1 cup small boiling onions

      2 cups fresh small button mushrooms

      Cut chuck roast into 1-inch cubes. Heat oven to 325-degrees.

      Cut bacon slices into 1/2-inch strips. In a large skillet, slowly cook

      bacon bits until crisp. Place drained bacon in the bottom of a 3-quart

      oven-proof casserole baking dish; retain bacon fat in skillet.

      Brown roast cubes on all sides in bacon fat; spoon into baking dish on top

      of bacon. Add flour to fat remaining in the skillet; stir over medium high

      heat until flour is browned.

      Carefully add broth and red wine to skillet, whisking contents to avoid

      lumps. Add bay leaf, thyme and pepper, and simmer skillet until slightly

      thickened, about 5 minutes. Stir often.

      When thickened, pour contents of skillet over meat and bacon. Cover baking

      dish and bake at 325-degrees until meat is tender, about 1 1/2 hours.

      Remove dish from oven and stir in onions and button mushrooms. If sauce is

      too thick, add small amounts of water or red wine. Return to oven until

      meat is very tender and vegetables are cooked, about 1 hour.

      Makes 12 servings. Serve over rice.

      To freeze: after stirring in onions and mushrooms, cool. Divide contents

      of casserole into two to four freezer containers, depending on family size.


      To cook after freezing: thaw freezer container in refrigerator overnight.

      Place contents in oven-safe casserole baking dish. Cover and bake at

      325-degrees until meat is really tender, about 1 1/2 hours.
