Ingredients Measures
Olive oil 2 teaspoons
Beef bottom round, trimmed and cut into 1-inch cubes 1 ½ pounds
Mushrooms, cleaned and quartered 8 ounces
Medium yellow onion, chopped 1
Freshly ground pepper to taste
Whole wheat flour 3 tablespoons
Burgundy wine (can also use Cabernet) 2 cups

  1. Preheat oven to 350˚F.
  2. Heat oil in a Dutch oven or large ovenproof pot over medium-high heat. Add meat and cook until browned on all sides. Add mushrooms, onion, and pepper, and sauté until onion is tender, about 5 minutes. Add flour and cook for 2-3 minutes more.
  3. Add wine, broth, tomato paste, rosemary, bay leaf, and brown sugar. Scrape up any browned bits from the bottom of the pot and bring to a simmer.
