My bachelor uncle gave me this recipe. It is easy to make and pop in the oven while you do other things and tastes great.
- 3 lbs stewing beef
- 2 cans cream of mushroom soup
- 3⁄4 cup sherry wine (may use 1 Cup)
- 1⁄2 package dry onion soup mix
- 1 cup chopped mushroom
- Cut Meat into 1 inch cubes.
- Combine all ingredients in large casserole dish.
- Sprinkle in a little cornstarch.
- Cover and Bake@ 325 degrees for 3 hours.
- Add chopped mushrooms 15 minutes before serving.
- Serve over cooked rice or noodles.
This was excellent! I added a tin of beef consomme in lieu of one of the tins of soup.In stead of adding cornstarch, I coated the beef cubes with flour and browned in a frying pan with a little oil before putting them in the pot.This resulted in lovely thick, rich, flavourful stew. Thanks for a wonderful recipe that my husband says is better than his mom's Beef Burgundy.
This is a terrific recipe! My sister calls it "Easy Beef Stew". I've made it a bunch of times and have used 1 can beef broth instead of two cans of cream of mushroom soup and added 2 tablespoons of tomato paste to give the sauce a deeper flavor and color. This is worth trying!
I found this recipe to be only marginal. The flavor was okay but I felt a little let down by the high reviews. I guess not everything is everyone's taste. It wasn't very appetizing from a visual aspect which made it hard for my family to get interested. The beef was tender which made my family at least try it. I certainly wouldn't say don't make it but really look at the ingredients and think about your family's taste perferences first. I would like to say thank you for sharing a recipe with the community here at Recipezaar. I appreceiated the opportunity to try it but wouldn't make it again.
