Beef Bourguignon or Beef Burgundy is a French recipe that dates way back, it is traditionally used with beef broth however, when your out of an item you raid the kitchen for a suitable replacement. This recipe is made with Lipton’s Beefy Onion soup mix and water in place of beef broth. It adds a great additional flavor and helps thicken the overall structure of the stew. I don’t mind taking a little extra help from the store if I can, which I did! But whatever you do don’t skimp on the wine in this recipe because it is key and there really isn’t a suitable replacement for Red Wine. Besides after adding the 2 whole cups this recipe calls for you’ll have just enough left over to drink while you do whatever it is you plan to do for the next hour and a half while you wait for this marvelous dish to finish.

Brown beef on all sides working in batches, careful not to over crowd pot. As meat browns remove and set aside. Once all meat has browned and pot is empty, drain off any excess oil or fat and place pot back on heat. Add wine to deglaze bottom of pot gently scrapping bottom to remove brown bits. Add beef back to pot along with Beefy Onion mix water, carrots, pearl onions, mushrooms, shallot, garlic and thyme. Taste and season with salt and pepper as needed. Turn heat down to simmer and cover, allow stew to remain at simmer for 1 1/2 hours or until beef in fork tender, stirring occasionally to prevent bottom from scorching. Remove lid and allow to continue to cook for 10 minutes to allow liquid to reduce and thicken. Serve stew over a bowl of mashed potatoes. Enjoy! Notes This recipe also works well in a slow cooker! Follow steps to brown meat, add to slow cooker with all other ingredients and set on high for 4 hours or low for 8 hours. If needed skim any fat off of the top prior to serving.
