Beef 'a La Mode

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Jellyqueen

Now don't ask me why this is called this....I don't have a clue why. It is a recipe I found in a 1970 Women's Day cookbook. I have revised it quite a bit to suit my needs. Nothing real fancy, just good old comfort food. I serve with noodles or rice. Prep time does not include the 5-6 hours the meat needs to marinade in the refrigerator.

Just an FYI - beef a la mode is a French dish, traditionally the beef is 'larded' (wrapped in bacon or pork fat) and then marinated in wine or brandy.
