. Beef Bourguignon Recipe
Beef bourguignon is a French stew made famous by Julia Child. Her love for classic techniques and wine is exquisitely displayed in this recipe. However, I made a few simple substitutions to modernize the ingredients and methods, but don’t worry. The rich flavors are not lost
The beef and bacon first cook on the stovetop to develop gorgeous colors and textures. The cooking is completed at a consistent temperature in the oven allowing the stew to braise for over an hour. This process completely changes the taste of the meat while developing a savory red wine sauce to pour generously on top.
