Thirty-one Days of Lor-cipies

My Christmas Gift to You




Today, I'm catching up, and posting three recipes instead of one. (I took a little break from the Internet, to show a little respect and pray for everyone directly affected by the massacre in Connecticut.)

So, a quick rundown of the contest: Try this one, then post a photo of it at my Facebook page, and I'll put your name in my handy Santa hat, and you could win a basket filled with Maryland goodies that's valued at $100!

Happy slow cooking!  And trust me...this one's harder to pronounce than it is to prepare!

Loree's Beef Bourguignon


3 pounds lean beef cubes

½ cup flour

4 slices bacon, diced

3 carrots, sliced

8 small red potatoes, unpeeled and quartered

10 mushrooms, sliced

24 pearl onions

2 cloves garlic, minced

1 bay leaf

1 teaspoon dried marjoram

½ teaspoon thyme

½ teaspoon salt

½ teaspoon black pepper

2-1/2 cups beef broth (or, if you prefer, Burgundy wine)




Spray slow cooker with Pam

Coat beef with flour and set aside

Cook bacon in large skillet over medium heat until partially cooked

Add beef and cook until browned

Remove with slotted spoon

Layer carrots, potatoes, mushrooms, onions, garlic, bay leaf, spices, and meat mixture in slow cooker
