Carbonnade of Beef

READY IN: 2hrs
Recipe by Laura_Ozz

This is another recipe from the Favorite Lake City Recipes cookbook. The recipe was submitted by my mother, Mrs. Denver P. Petre, Bldg. 3. It is one of my childhood favorites. The meat is so tender it literally falls apart and the taste is wonderful! Served with mashed potatoes and some green beans or your favorite vegetable and you have one of my favorite "comfort meals." *You may use 1 1/2 cups water and 1 more beef bouillon cube instead of beer.
