Beef Burgundy

At my bridal shower all of the guests brought a favorite recipe to get my recipe collection started! It was so fun and so many of those recipes are ones that i use regularly now!! This recipe is the one that my Meemi (my grandma) decided to give me at the shower. It is so dang good and i love making it when i have company coming over! Although there is alot of prep work it can all be done and cleaned up before guests arrive! And as an added bonus the house smells AMAZING when my guests arrive!

12 oz bacon, cut in squares
3 lbs round steak, cubed
1-2 lg carrots, sliced ( i usually use even more!)
1 med onion, chopped
3 tbsp flour
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1 can beef broth
2 cups burgundy cooking wine
1 tbsp ketchup
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 tsp thyme
2 bay leaves
1/2 lb (or 1-8 oz can) mushrooms

In a dutch oven, cook bacon until crisp. Remove from pan.

Brown beef in bacon fat, and remove.

Saute the carrots and onion and take out.

Blend in flour and seasonings. Add broth.

Cook, stirring constantly until slightly thickened and smooth.

Add the wine, ketchup, garlic, thyme and bay leaves and stir well.

Now add the meats, carrots and onion to the pan.

Cover and place in preheated 375 degree oven for about 2 hours, or until meat is tender.

Add mushrooms during the last half hour.

Serve over rice, pasta or mashed potatoes and ENJOY!!! (i always serve it over pasta!)

Like i said.....there is alot of prep work involved but it is SOOOOOO worth it!!
