What's for dinner?
Tonight it's Slow Cooker Beef Bourguignon (based on a recipe from Fix It Quick, Favorite Brand Name Slow Cooker cookbook).
I tweak it for my family, who do not enjoy mushrooms. You can add egg noodles, rice, or mashed potatoes if you like.
This is a fabulous dish to take to a potluck dinner or make for your family. Enjoy!
3 lbs. boneless beef top sirloin, cut into bite-size pieces
1/2 cup flour
4 slices bacon, diced
2 medium carrots, sliced
8 small new potatoes, unpeeled and quartered
8 to 10 mushrooms, sliced
20 to 24 pearl onions, peeled
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 bay leaf
1 tsp. dried marjoram
1/2 tsp. dried thyme
1/2 tsp. salt
Black pepper to taste
2 1/2 cups Burgundy wine or beef broth
1. Coat beef with flour. (I use a zipper storage bag to shake the beef in the flour; much cleaner!)
2. Brown bacon in large skillet; when half done, add coated beef and cook until browned. (I use a Dutch oven. It keeps the grease and flour in the pot and off the stovetop.)
3. Layer carrots, potatoes, mushrooms, onions, garlic, herbs and spices in slow cooker. Remove beef and bacon from pan with slotted spoon and place on top of other ingredients in cooker. Cook on low for 8 to 9 hours. (Note: I either spray the inside with non-stick spray or use a slow cooker bag.)
