Beef Burgundy

You know you've got a good thing when you announce dinners ready and your 3 year old yells from her room "Oh boy, dinners ready" and comes running. Tonight I made Beef Burgundy for the first time. I don't normally modify a recipe when I first make it but I did add a few things and I know I'll make it the same way next time! It turned out super yummy!!

4 tablespoons butter or margarine (you know everything's better with butter, heehee)
1 1/2 pounds of beef filet, cubed (? Not sure what that is but I used sirloin)
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 cup Burgundy wine or beef broth (I used beef broth since I didn't have any wine)
1 cup beef bouillon (1 cup boiling water with one beef bouillon cube)
2 tablespoons ketchup
1 (32 ounce) package frozen vegetables for stew (I used a veggie mix with potatoes, carrots, green beans and onion)
1 bay leaf
1/2 teaspoon onion salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
8 ounces egg noodles, cooked

Heat butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat; add beef. Saute beef until brown on all sides. Sprinkle with flour; mix well.
Stir wine (or beef broth) into skillet. I also added one envelope of dry onion soup. Cook, covered, over medium heat for 5 minutes. Blend bouillon and ketchup in a measuring cup. Stir mixture into skillet.
Add vegetables and bay leaf to skillet. I also added diced celery. Cook, covered, for 15 minutes or until beef and vegetables are tender.
Discard bay leaf. Stir in onion salt and pepper. Serve over egg noodles.
