Preparation Instructions

Cut and trim beef into bite sized pieces removing excess fat. In Dutch Oven or heavy pot with lid melt butter. Add bacon and onion, saute. Do not let bacon get crisp. Remove bacon onion mixture with slotted spoon to a strainer or collander placed over a bowl. Brown beef in pan juices salting & peppering to taste. Go easy with salt because bacon may be salty.
