Ken's beef bourguignon

Yield: 8 Servings

Measure Ingredient
5 pounds Beef; cut into cubes
Flour for dusting meat
¼ cup Butter or margarine
¼ cup Olive oil
Cognac
½ pounds Bacon; chopped
4 Cloves garlic; chopped
2 Carrot; chopped
2 Leeks; chopped
4 mediums Onion; chopped
2 tablespoons Parsley
2 Bay leaves
1 teaspoon Thyme
1 Bottle burgundy wine
2 pounds Onions; sliced
1 pounds Mushrooms; cleaned

Dust beef with flour and brown in butter and olive oil. Pour warm cognac over it and light. (I have never used the cognac--it's too expensive--and I never noticed a difference in the taste. But don't tell Ken).

Brown the bacon, garlic, carrots, leeks, onions and parsley. (I also never put leeks in it) Add the vegetables to the meat in an oven proof dutch oven.

Add bay leaves, thyme, wine. Add enough water to cover all the meat. Bake at 350F for 1-½ to 2 hrs. Stir in 1 tablespoon flour mixed with 1 tablespoon butter. Bake 2-3 hrs. more.

Brown the onions and mushrooms in margarine. Sprinkle with sugar. Add to meat before serving.
