How to make it

  • Cut beef into one inch cubes, removing as much separable fat as possible
  • Start beef browning in a heavy Dutch oven, stirring and browning only one layer at a time to assure that the beef chunks brown well.
  • Set aside to put back into the Dutch Oven
  • When all beef chunks are browned , return them to the Dutch Oven and add some water to the pot to liquify all the brownings.
  • Put the onion and garlic into a food processor and process until very fine, (best) , or mince finely and add to Dutch Oven.
  • Add Merlot and Water just to cover the beef cubes.
  • Add beef powder or beef buillion cubes, poultry seasoning and thyme, rosemary and bay leaves.
  • Stir all ingredients together and cook very slowly--low on crock pot and very slow in oven or on the top of the stove (covered) for about 6 hours.
  • About an hour before you want to eat, remove about 1/2-1/3 of liqud from pot and put into a bowl to cool. Add some ice to remove the fat, if desired.
  • Stir in corn starch and then stir that well into the stew.
  • Prepare the mushrooms (wash them, trim the hard part off the stems and cut them in halves. )
  • Add the mushrooms to the beef and cover, cooking another 45 minutes to an hour.
  • Remove bay leaves and serve.
  • Serve over Noodles.
  • I like this because you can make it early in the morning, put it into a slow oven and forget it until dinnertime. AND, IT TASTES WONDERFUL.
