Easy Beef Bourguignonne

I bought a wonderful Merlot for this recipe. (Only $2--I know Jay and Godric are jealous!) So, I'm sitting here sipping wine and delaying on starting dinner. . .


2 lbs lean stewing beef
3 - 4 TBS flour
1 tsp each, garlic powder, onion powder, dried parsley, salt & pepper
1 bay leaf (just for you, Bayou !)
1 cup dry red wine
1 cup water
1 cup beef broth
1/2 cup worcestershire sauce
2 cups mushrooms, sliced
2 large onions, diced
olive oil

Saute onions and mushrooms in olive oil and place in crockpot. Combine flour, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, pepper and parsley in a large bowl. Toss meat in, lightly coating each piece. Shake off excess flour and place in the crockpot. Add wine, water, broth, worcestershire sauce and bay leaf. Cook on low for 8 hours or on high for 4. Remove bay leaf before serving. Serve with buttered noodles.

NOTE: If you don't have a crockpot, you can also cook this in a sealed oven dish for 2 - 3 hours at 300 degrees.

NOTE II: For a little added zing, you can also add a few shakes of A-1 sauce to the sauce, if you like.

Again, a classic from Ellen.

Two-buck wine AND Yulia Tymoshenko? Why do you people get all the breaks?!

I love crockpots...easy meals that taste difficult. ;) Thanks for sharing...I can't wait to try it! And I'll buy my red wine at Trader Joe's for only $1.99! ;) http://www.traderjoes.com/ (another plug) *grin*

I keep hearing about the good, cheap wine from Trader Joes. And lots of goodies available there. . . I hope there is one in Sarasota.

Familiar with Trader Joe's from our CA days, but unfortunately, no -- none in FL at all, according to a quick google search.

I do so love Beef Bourguinonne!

Yummmmm...maybe I'll make it on Sunday.

BTW - I got ahold of a copy of Families Where Grace is in Place AND Relational Parenting. Which should I read first???

Thanks for posting. I am going to 'Veganize' this recipe. ;-)I have been looking for a bourguignonne.

Just put it in the crock pot. I'll let you know how it comes out!

Pretty good! Fabulous flavor, but a little watery. Next time I'll plan to thicken the gravy before I serve it. My daughter said that our home smelled like a restaurant and I agree - so savory.

Oh, this looks sooooo good! I think I'll make this for dinner on Friday.

I would cook it if I could pronounce that big word! I guess I could call it "Cow from a Crock".

Thanks for the post on beef crock pot recipes.
I'll have to give that one a try.
