After my father and we watched Julie and Julia (good movie!), we went on a French cooking kick. Boeuf Bourguignon (also famous as Beef Burgundy) was already flattering healthy to start with, and we could make it with mixture we already had on hand.
It unequivocally is all it is done out to be in a movie, and we demeanour brazen to creation it again!
Boeuf Bourguignon… As Fancy As It Sounds?
This plate unequivocally isn’t as difficult as it sounds. Boeuf Bourguignon is simply a French approach of observant Beef Burgundy, that is fundamentally a beef meal done with red wine. It’s hearty, rich, and intensely flavorful, with copiousness of onions, carrots, mushrooms, garlic, and herbs.
I typically offer it as we would any stew, with only a shower of uninformed parsley on top, though we’ve also eaten it over cauliflower crushed “potatoes.”
Beef Stew With Wine!
Nothing turns my opinion toward cooking around like being “obligated” to open a bottle of booze given a recipe calls for it! A small for a stew, a small for me!
You can unequivocally use any red booze you’d like to make this classical dish, only make certain it is a dry one. Since honeyed wines enclose some-more sugarine than dry ones, a honeyed booze will make your finished Boeuf Bourguignon ambience a small honeyed too. Burgandy is ideal, though other good booze choices for this plate are pinot noir, cabernet, or merlot.
We sequence all a booze from Dry Farm Wines. They do an glorious pursuit of lab contrast their products to make certain they are clean, low in sugars and sulfites, dry-farmed, and palm harvested. Read some-more about them in this post.
Boeuf Bourguignon in Crock-Pot or Instant Pot
The normal process for creation Boeuf Bourguignon is to brownish-red a beef in a vessel on a stove before mixing all a mixture in a lonesome pot and cooking for a prolonged time in a oven. we make it that approach sometimes, though it’s good to have other options when we don’t wish to feverishness adult your residence with a oven all day or you’re only brief on time.
I’ve updated this recipe with an Instant Pot choice since we can sauté and prepare in one pot. You get all a season and adore of a normal process in a fragment of a time, and with fewer dishes. (Read some-more about because we adore my Instant Pot in this post.)

Note: For all 3 options we deglaze a vessel with a booze after browning a beef and afterwards cook it for a small while to let a ethanol evaporate.
I wish we suffer a robust and warming flavors of Boeuf Bourguignon as most as we did. Next maybe I’ll try some of these other French classics next!
