Julia Child has nothing on me!


I was inspired after seeing the movie Julia and Julie to make Beef Bourguignon but for some reason it scared me! 
So I made my own version this weekend and it was fabulous so I wanted to share.  I used the crockpot which made it doubly easy.   Here's my recipe:

First, spray your skillet with non-stick spray and fry 1/2 lb. of bacon.  Put that in the crockpot when it is done.
Then, take a roast (I used sirloin tip) and cut into large cubes.  Roll in flour and brown in olive oil.  Place in crock pot.
Add one cup of red wine (preferably burgundy).
One onion chopped in large wedges.
One bay leaf.
Top with potato chunks, carrot chunks, celery pieces, mushrooms (if you like) and salt and pepper.  Cook on low heat for 6-8 hours.

I served with some crusty french bread.  It was a great meal, easy to make, and will impress your dinner guests!  Bon appetit!
