________
1 Pot Liquor (Marinade) --

2 pints Sour Cream, Imitation
4 tablespoons Corn Starch
2 teaspoons Kitchen Bouquet (For Color)

STEP ONE:

Combine marinade ingredients in a large pot. Boil for 10 minutes. Let mixture cool. Add beef, and marinate in refrigerator for 24 to 48 hours.

STEP TWO:

Simmer beef in marinade until tender, on low heat. Add water as needed so meat is covered with liquid.

STEP THREE:

Strain liquid. Discard vegetables and spices. Cut cooled beef into ½ inch slices.

To the liquid, add sour cream thickened with corn starch [note from Jocie: works better if you add sour cream first, then mix corn starch with a little milk before adding] , and the kitchen bouquet (just enough to add a little color).

Cook gravy, stirring constantly, until perfectly smooth and slightly thickened.

Add sliced beef to the gravy, and bring to a full boil.
