WebMD Recipe

This is a light version of the wonderfully elegant (and potentially romantic) French classic. Serve it with crusty whole-wheat French or sourdough bread.

  • 8 slices
    turkey bacon
  • 2 teaspoons
    canola oil
  • 2 pounds
    beef tip sirloin, or similar cut, trimmed of visible fat and cut into 1-inch chunks
  • 1/3 cup
    quick-mixing flour, plus 2 tablespoons, divided use
  • 16 small
    white onions
  • 1 1/2 cups
    baby carrots, or 2 small carrots, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons
  • 3 cloves
    garlic, crushed or minced
  • 3/4 teaspoon
    salt, optional
  • 1/2 teaspoon
    thyme leaves, crushed
  • 1/4 teaspoon
  • bay leaf
  • 1 cup
    red Burgundy wine
  • 1 cup
    low-sodium beef broth
  • 3/4 pound
    sliced mushrooms
  1. In large, nonstick frying pan over medium-low heat, cook bacon strips until just crisp (you can use the microwave instead, cooking 4 strips at a time on a double thickness of paper towels for about 4 minutes). Break up into bits.
  2. Put 1/3 cup flour in a medium-sized bowl or large sealable sandwich bag. Add beef chunks and coat well with flour. Heat oil over medium-high heat in the frying pan. Add beef chunks, spray the top with canola cooking spray, and cook, turning until browned on all sides.
  3. Put the browned beef and remaining ingredients in slow cooker. Stir, and then cook on LOW until beef is cooked throughout and onions are fork-tender (about 10 hours). Serve with bread, if desired.
