One of my very first recipe creations. I had a leftover pack of rib eyes from the Summer and wanted a good Winter nights use for them. So, I created what I called "Steak Bake." Which slowly morphed into a richer gravy using burgundy wine. This dish is usually now a "birthday request" dinner dish! I love this and didn't realize I had never shared with you all! Enjoy - Diane

At end of baking time - take meat and onions out of dutch oven (using a slotted spoon) place liquid into fat separator and measure liquid level.
Add more beef stock, if needed - to make 2cups liquid for gravy.
Make a roux in dutch oven, *melt 2 Tbs Butter, add 2Tbs Flour and stir until the butter and flour combine and smell a bit nutty....then slowly add the 2 Cups liquid to dutch oven slowly and stirring well - increase the heat to thicken gravy. Salt and pepper to taste.
Place Onions and Meat back into dutch oven and stir to coat in gravy/sauce - place onto serving plate & serve.
Hint: IF you pat dry beef with a paper towel before browning, it
will brown quicker
