In this easy recipe, beef is combined with bacon, onion, and a little garlic in a flavorful sour cream sauce.  Serve  this tasty recipe with your favorite biscuits or homemade rolls.


  • 4 slices bacon, diced
  • 2 pounds lean stew beef
  • 1 1/2 cups chopped onion
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried marjoram
  • 2/3 cup dry white wine
  • 2 cups sour cream
  • 2 to 3 teaspoons chopped fresh parsley
  • paprika


In a Dutch oven or large, deep skillet, cook bacon until browned. Remove bacon; set aside.

Add beef to bacon drippings in pan; brown on all sides. Add onion and garlic; cook until onion is just tender, about 5 minutes. Stir in bacon, salt, pepper, marjoram, and wine. Bring to a boil; cover and simmer for 1 1/2 hours, until beef is tender. Check occasionally and add a little beef broth or water if necessary.

Stir in sour cream; heat through. Sprinkle with parsley and paprika.

Serve with noodles, if desired.

Serves 6 to 8.

A wonderful beef recipe!, Member Gribbage

This is a great recipe - perfect for a chilly evening. It was an instant hit with my family (some of whom are very picky eaters) and they've already asked to have it again. I highly recommend this dish!
