  1. Place flour in large bowl, and season with salt and pepper. Dredge beef in flour to coat.
  2. Melt 2 tablespoons butter in a heavy Dutch oven over high heat. Working in batches, saute beef until brown on all sides, about 5 minutes per batch.
  3. Return all meat to pot, and add brandy; boil until almost evaporated, about 2 minutes. Add wine, broth, thyme, garlic, bay leaves and oregano. Cover, and simmer until beef is almost tender, about 1 hour.
  4. Meanwhile, melt 1 tablespoon butter in large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Saute onions until brown. Using slotted spoon, transfer onion to large bowl. Melt 1 tablespoon butter in same skillet, add carrots and celery, and saute until golden. Transfer to bowl with onions. Melt 2 tablespoons butter in same skillet, add potatoes, and saute until brown on all sides. Transfer to bowl with other vegetables. Melt 1 tablespoon butter in same skillet, add mushrooms, and saute until brown on all sides, about 5 minutes. Transfer to bowl.

A beautiful Beef Burgundy. As good as I have had even in France. The meat was very tender, it also pays to use a good wine. I used the same as we were drinking with the dinner. Instead of ad...

The beef was so tender. The whole house smelled invitingly delicious. The sauce was eagerly sopped up with French bread. Everyone is looking forward to another batch.
