3
large onions, sliced
8
ounces fresh mushrooms, sliced (2 1/2 cups)
2
tablespoons Gold Medal™ all-purpose flour

cup red Burgundy or other dry red wine or tomato juice

  • 1 Cut beef into 1-inch cubes. Melt shortening in Dutch oven.

Expert Tips

If both wine and tomato juice are not for you, use apple juice instead.
