  1. In a small bowl, mix together beef broth, flour, tomato paste and demi glace; set aside.
  2. Heat bacon drippings in a large heavy skillet over medium heat. Add beef, and cook until brown on all sides. Remove beef from skillet; set aside. Stir the sherry wine into the skillet. Add the onions, and cook about 5 minutes. Blend in the tomato paste mixture, and bring to a rapid boil, stirring constantly. Stir in Burgundy wine. Make the herb bouquet: Place parsley, rosemary, thyme, and bay leaf in a square of cheesecloth. Place herb bouquet in sauce.
  3. Return beef to skillet. Cover, and simmer over low heat for about 3 hours, or until beef is tender.
  4. Melt butter in a small skillet over medium heat. Saute mushrooms until lightly browned. Add to meat in the skillet, and continue cooking 15 minutes. Discard bouquet garni. Serve in a casserole dish, sprinkled with parsley.

I thought this was OK. Not bad but not great. I did think the wine flavor was a little over powering even after cooking for 3 hours. I don't know that I'll make this again, because I don't think...

What a great recipe. So much better than others I've tried that just seemed too much like stew. I have a great tip for the herb bouquet that I learned from Tyler Florence on Food Network. Ins...

This is one of my favorite recipes from this website. Takes some time, but worth it, and doesn't require you to hover around while it simmers for 3 hours. It just looks like beef stew, which I...

This was excellent Elliana! I didn't measure the wine; in fact, in the morning I placed my meat into a large plastic container and poured wine over until about half the meat was covered. I also ...

I sized the recipe for 16 and made it for Christmas dinner. It was fantastic for a big crowd, prep work is done early so you can enjoy time with guests, and goes very well with roasted garlic ma...

This was wonderful! The only thing I did different was to sear the meat in butter after dusting it with a seasoned flour mixture. Everyone who tried it said it was the best!

I used double-strength beef broth which meant I could omit the demi glaze and stew meat instead of beef round. With all the simmering, you really couldn't tell I used a cheaper cut of meat. This...

Thank you Elliana for a great recipe! The only thing I will differntly next time is to double the sauce, as my husband and I both like a lot of sauce. After tasting this recipe we both said it...
