Beef Burgundy Over Herb Egg Noodles

Thanks to my wonderful Internet provider; I do not have Internet access at my house. So, since I am not doing this locally, I don’t have any pictures for you this morningL

However, I am throwing a dinner party for my uncle this weekend and in lieu of pictures, I am going to share my whole menu with you. Then, over the next couple weeks, I will post all the other recipes and pictures. Deal? Great, I knew you would be ok with thatJ

Here is my French Menu:
Barefoot Chardonnay for the First Two Courses
Susie’s Homemade Molasses Dinner Rolls
French Onion & Fontina Cheese Soup with Susie’s Homemade Ciabatta Bread Croutons
Leafy Greens with Apples and Dijon Mustard Vinaigrette

Burgundy Wine for the Main Course
Beef Burgundy Over Herb Egg Noodles (see the recipe below)

French Vanilla Coffee for Dessert Course
Grandma’s Homemade Pecan-Filled Butterhorns with Sugar Glaze

To kick off my recipe postings, here is the Main Course:

Beef Burgundy Over Herb Egg Noodles
3 lb. Beef chuck or round steak cut in about 1” cubes
3 tbsp butter
1 tbsp flour
1 cup Burgundy
10-½ oz. can beef stock
3 or 4 sprigs fresh sage
3 or 4 sprig fresh thyme
3 slices bacon
2 medium onions sliced
12 oz wide egg noodles
2 tbsp unsalted butter
¼ cup chopped fresh parsley leaves
12 blades fresh chives snipped or finely chopped (plus extra for garnish, if desired)

1. Brown meat in butter in a deep and heavy skillet. Add flour and stir while cooking for 2 to 3 minutes. Add burgundy, beef stock and seasoning. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer covered for 2 hours. Check while simmering and add liquid as necessary.

2. Fry onions and bacon together until onions are lightly browned. Drain fat and add to meat along with mushrooms. Let simmer for another 30 minutes.

3. Meanwhile, prepare the egg noodles to the package directions. Toss hot egg noodles with butter and herbs.

4. To serve, place a bed of noodles in a shallow bowl and pour beef burgundy over the noodles. Garnish with fresh chives, if desired.

Serves 6
