Beef Burgendy

Do you like beef?




Because I love beef.




Obviously.



And if you like beef half as much as I do, especially the soft, tender, barely have to chew meat that Ben calls "soft meat," then you'll love this beef Burgundy.

Let me put it to you this way. I made this the weekend before Thanksgiving. Then I had to make it the day after Thanksgiving. Then we ate it for lunch and dinner the following day. It's that good. It's like crack in beef form.

Not that I know about crack.


Even if it's straight out of the pot and steaming, I can't help myself...


When we were in Shreveport, a good family friend named Margaret made us this for dinner one night and it's been floating around our minds ever since.

Hey Margaret, we're coming back in a couple weeks before Christmas.

If you feel like cooking, I know what we could have....



Margaret's Beef Burgundy

2 onions chopped fine in food processor
2 tblspn. vegetable oil
2 lbs beef tips (can use sirloin tip roast)
2 tblspn
1 cup beef bullion
1 1/2 cup Burgundy wine (Noble Pig, please don't hate me. I grabbed a $4.99 pack of mini Merlot bottles that were about a cup each. I'm cheap.)
1/4 tsp. each of marjuem, thyme, oregano.
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper
1 cup shredded carrots
Garlic (3 cloves)

1) Saute onions in oil.
2) Remove from pan and put aside.
3) Dust beef with flour and brown meat.
4) Put meat and onions in a pot. Add 3/4 cup of beef bullion, 1 cup of wine, all seasonings and carrots.
5) Simmer covered for 1 1/2 hours. Stir occasionally. If dry, add more liquid and stir for 15 minutes.
6) Serve over egg noodles boiled with tablespoon of oil.


Stay tuned, Invisible Friends! Tomorrow, we have a new Kitchen Magic, where Bizzy navigates the world of kitchen fairies. And this weekend, we'll take a tour of Christmas in the Pond!

I make one similar from Tyler Florence but never posted it. I think the last time I made it I was put off a bit because we got tough meat! This looks great though! Love it over the noodles too.

Oh my! Apple pie! said...

This looks great....right up my street. (I adore soft, soft, meltingly tender beef)

Teresa R said...

Mmmm, we do love beef too. We usually buy half a cow from our friends who raise Belted Galloways; the flavor is incredible! The Beef Burgundy recipe looks wonderful.

Thanks for stopping by my blog!

Cakelaw said...

Yum! This looks delicious! Your dad's even smiling about the great big side of beef. I only buy cheap wine (<$10 bottle) to cook with too - I know what they say, but it's always tasted fine to me :)

noble pig said...

I marinate my meat starting the night before in one full bottle of red wine, oh geez it's good. I know this is an addicting dinner.

Jan said...

Sounds yumptious.

n.o.e said...

Mmmm, I love beef in just about any form, but the tender, soft kind with gravy is my favorite. Great looking dish!

Navita said...

Candy said...

Yum! Finally catching up on the stories, too. I love them!

Lore said...

Do I love beef? I adore the stuff, but there is a mini-war going between my hubby and I because I love soft meat while he doesn't. More for me :D. I'd eat this anytime. Wake me up at 2 a.m. for this and I won't complain about it, on the contrary!!!!

Sandy Michelle said...

Thanks for your sweet congrats! I must try your recipe! Deeelish!

Chef E said...

That looks really good, and reminds me of one of my favs Beef Stroganoff...maybe that will be on my menu in the next two weeks!

Casey's trio said...

This recipe sounds delicious. Now I have a question (probably a lame one)...I have heard of beef boullion cubes that you put in water. Is there beef boullion liquid that is sold at stores or is it just beef broth?
