Boeuf Bourguignon

Boeuf Bourguignon
Boeuf bourguignon is a traditional French peasant dish, but it seems quite luxurious to me, in both flavor and nutrients. On top of this, it is surprisingly easy and relatively inexpensive to make (if you don’t count the dry red wine). And, like many good things, it takes some time to prepare and cook.

I’m lucky enough to have a friend who is not only French, but also loves to cook and share her recipes. Armelle was kind enough to share her version of boeuf bourguignon. Thanks, Armelle!

Traditionally this dish is made in one pot, and cooks for about 6 to 8 hours. Armelle has managed to get this down to 3 to 4 hours, with no loss of quality – and possibly even richer flavors by roasting the vegetables.

I’ve made it two ways, and both are outstanding – roasting the vegetables separately and putting all the vegetables in the pot at the start. So it’s up to you. I did modify a few things, such as not coating the beef in flour before browning it, and substituting some beef broth for wine when I didn’t have an entire bottle of dry red wine to spare.

Tips Very dry wine and champagne contain very little sugar, which is why you will not get a headache when you drink them. And by the time you’re done cooking this dish, all of the alcohol will have evaporated.

A little trick in this recipe picture is that the “mashed potatoes” is actually steamed, mashed cauliflower.

      Hi Dana – yes, a slow-cooker will definitely work. I’m just gone a lot of the day right now, and uneasy about leaving the slow-cooker going for such a long time. Go for it!
