Beef Bourguignon

0 comments

Through the years, beef bourguignon has become my go-to rainy day recipe. For most, a rainy day would call for a ramen delivery or breakfast for dinner. So, how has Julia Child’s famous dish become one of my favorite comfort foods? I first made this dish three years ago and, like most, was intimidated from the start. Just looking at the ingredient list can be overwhelming! However, once I started cooking the recipe, I found it straightforward and easy.  Over the years, I’ve perfected my own beef bourguignon recipe that uses one pot, requires minimal effort after the initial 30 minutes, and can be left in the oven without touching it for two hours! My tip? Take it one step at a time and try not to let the ingredients or time stamp get to you. After manning the dish for 30 minutes, you’re free to let it simmer for two hours. Then, you have delicious, tender beef that is the ultimate comfort dish!

Ta-da! Now, you have delicious beef bourguignon. This dish feeds a crowd, but luckily it also freezes. You can keep it in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to five days. After five days, place it in the freezer for up to 3 months. If you aren’t a fan of polenta, you can switch it out for mashed potatoes. This dish is also great over pasta!
