This beef bourguignon recipe makes 4 servings. It is a very simple recipe, but it takes quite some time, as we use a slow cooker. It takes 3 to 4 hours for the meat to marinate, then 8 to 10 hours to cook. The result is fantastic, so the wait surely pays off.

INGREDIENTS:
  • 1 c. dry red wine
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 large sliced onion
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground thyme
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1/2 teaspoon coarse ground black pepper
  • 2 pounds stewing beef
  • 3 slices diced bacon
  • 12 small white onions
  • 1/2 pound small mushrooms
  • 2 minced cloves garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

DIRECTIONS:
  1. In a mixing bowl, combine red wine, olive oil, onion, ground thyme, parsley, bay leaf and black pepper. Mix well and add the beef.
  2. Let the beef marinate for 3 to 4 hours, or overnight if refrigerated.
  3. Once marinated well, drain the meat but reserve the marinade.
  4. In a skillet, sauté the bacon. Remove the bacon and add the beef into the bacon fat then brown it.
  5. In a crock pot, combine the browned beef, bacon, mushrooms, garlic and onions. Cover with the reserved marinade.
  6. Cover and cook on low for 8 to 10 hours.
