When I made this recipe for our kids' French club more than 20 years ago, their teacher said it was better than any "authentic" versions of Beef Bourguignonne she'd tried. —Edna Lanam, Stockton, California

  • 4-1/2 teaspoons canola oil
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed

  • 1/2 cup condensed beef consomme, undiluted

  3. In a Dutch oven over medium-high heat, brown meat in 2 tablespoons butter on all sides. Stir in consomme and reserved marinade. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 1-1/2 hours or until meat is tender.
  4. In a large saucepan, bring water to a boil. Add pearl onions; boil for 3 minutes. Drain and rinse in cold water; peel. In a skillet, saute mushrooms and pearl onions in remaining butter until tender. Add to beef mixture. Simmer, uncovered, for 10 minutes. Thicken if desired. Serve with noodles. Yield: 6-8 servings.

"I had never had beef burgundy before I made this, so I wasn't sure quite what to expect. First of all, the recipe never says where to use the remaining 1-1/3 cups red wine. I added it to the reserved marinade when bringing it to a boil. I didn't have a bay leaf so I added a little extra dried thyme. In the end, I did not care for the flavor. It seemed like it was missing something...salt/pepper? My 4 year said he liked it, though. It is a pretty time consuming recipe. I would not make this again; if wanted to try beef burgundy again, I would look for another recipe."
