I got allot of these,. I bought tons of recipe boxes from an auction recently, they are all on hand written index cards.

I remember making this so many times and I have my own hand printed recipe. In fact it is so old that a lot of it has faded and was illegible but now I can read the whole recipe. Think I got it from a magazine under the heading"Star's Favourite Recipes" when I was living in Canada. This stew is without doubt one of the most delicious, rich stews you will ever have. Certainly the burgandy makes a difference and I only ever used cheap wine. I can't believe that I googled "Burt's Beef Stew" and I got the original recipe. Try it because you will absolutely love it.
