We decided on Beef Burgundy.
I've never made it before so it'll be an experiment. Here's the recipe I'll use. Any advice or anything you'd do differently?

5 - 6 pieces of bacon diced and cooked in large oven proof pot.
Once bacon is mostly cooked (do not drain) add 1.5 pounds stew meat and brown on all sides. Salt and pepper to taste.
Add One Large Union chopped & Mushrooms (halved) to taste. Cook 5 min or until onion is tender.
Add in 3 table spoon tomato paste, 3 table spoons flour and two packed table spoons brown sugar. cook 2-3 min.
Add 2 cups red wine, 3 cups beef broth, 1 sprig rosemary, 2 bay leafs.
Place in 350 deg oven for 1.5 hours covered.
Uncover - Add 20 - 30 baby carrots & 20 - 30 pearl onions. Cook for 30min or until carrots are tender.
Add salt and pepper to taste.

hmmm, pdswife, whaddya have against unions? ol' ronald reagen woulda loved you. (j/k, i know you meant onions.)

i would remove the bacon after it has rendered, setting it aside on a paper towel. put it back into the pot when you add the wine. also, i would season the meat cubes with s&p, then flour them before browning in the bacon fat.
i would also add a few tbsps. of butter when browning the meat.

I have no earthly idea what's for dinner.

Hey Bucky, if you haven't found a balsamic marinade for your pork yet, try mixing some balsamic vinegar with some thawed orange juice concentrate. I can't think of the ratios right now. It's something we used to do way-back-when at the first country club I worked at.
