yeah I know, I am not a food porn artist... but I just eat, you are the ones who asked for pictures, despite being less than fabulous with the camera I try to indulge...

Beef and Mushroom Sauce
1.5 lb cubed beef
s/p, garlic/onion pwd
3T flour
(oil if needed)
1 c red wine (I used cab, oh yeah that S.African obsession)
1 c water (could use beef broth if you are prepared)
13 oz can mushrooms, drained (dr 8 oz; can use fresh and cook with the meat)

Season the meat and brown it up on all sides… push the meat off to one side and add the flour to make a roux with the run off (if you have leaner meat add oil as needed until the flour is coated, or you can drain the grease and do the whole thing with oil too)… stir the roux until the flour begins to golden a bit, the mix in the wine and the water, and then the mushrooms… Cover and bring to a boil for a couple of minutes, then reduce to a simmer… when beef is tender, serve over rice or noodles or even mashed potatoes…
