When we were first married and living in San Francisco, our friend, Maureen, had this most delicious recipe for roast beef. For years I made it and then one day I couldn't find the recipe. We had lost touch over the years but reconnected awhile back on Facebook. I asked her if she still had that recipe after 40 something years. She had to dig a little but she did find it. So here it is. I haven't tried it again yet but I want to at some point.
Buy the beef roast of your choice. I always used just a tender boneless roast.
2 cups Burgundy Wine (I'm going to try it with
the non-alcoholic variety of wine.)
2 medium onions finely chopped
2 or more cloves of minced garlic
3 bay leaves crumbled
1 tsp dried thyme
Marinate roast beef overnight.
Cook roast as usual
Add the marinade last 30 minutes
Use along with drippings to make the gravy.
I remember this was the best ever meat and gravy.
I'll report back after we try it!
I'm so glad we are back in touch after all these years.
