Want Something French in Your Life? Make Boeuf Bourguignon!

Jump to recipe

I don’t know what possessed me to tackle this extensive cooking endeavor. It’s been a few years since I watched the movie, Julia Julie and I haven’t read Julia Child’s cookbook (Mastering the Art of French Cooking) recently.

So I’m not Julia Child or Julie Powell from the famous movie Julia Julie. But I am going to channel them both while I am cooking this wonderfully flavored Boeuf Bourguignon. Oh Yeah!

Before starting this recipe, make sure you set aside a couple of hours for assembly of ingredients, pre-cooking (sauteing and searing some items), oven time of about 1 1/2 hours, plus finishing on the stovetop for another 15-20 minutes. Believe me when I tell you it is worth your time!

Will all these ingredients fit into the pot? 

Let’s fire this baby up! Cooking off the brandy before adding the wine.

Added one entire bottle of wine to the recipe. Well, maybe a sip for the cook?

Cook, cook, cooking away.

I served the Boeuf Bourguignon with spinach, strawberry & candied walnut salad, and popovers.

The morning after serving this Boeuf Bourguignon one of the first things my hubby and I said to each other was “I can’t wait for dinner tonight to eat the leftovers!”.
