classic beef burgundy
Boeuf bourguignon - or beef burgundy - is the quintessential French stew. Its flavors combine the strong aroma of red wine with the delicacy of the bouquet garni, the sweetness of the carrots with the smokiness of the bacon.
Unlike Julia Child has led so many Americans to believe, boeuf bourguignon is truly a one-pot dish. The prep time is quasi non-existent (less than 15 minutes), and the stew simply cooks itself!
