    This is a classic beef burgundy recipe for all you wine lovers. I like to use wine a lot in my recipes as it makes me seem more the 'expert' than I am. ;) Remember the secret to using wine or beer in any recipe is always to use a good, quality product. Never use any of that 'cooking wine' stuff, for example. I have recipes that use beer as well for those who prefer that to wine if desired. Enjoy!

    3 slices bacon, diced
    1 lb boneless beef stew meat, cut into 1 inch pieces
    2 cloves garlic, minced
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1/4 teaspoon fresh ground pepper
    12 ounces mushrooms, halved
    1 (14 ounce) can beef broth
    1 1/2 cups dry red wine, such as cabernet sauvignon
    10 ounces small white pearl onions, peeled (about 24)
    1 1/2 teaspoons dried thyme or 1 sprig fresh thyme
