Boeuf BourguignonAfter buying Julia Childs cookbook a few years ago and watching Julie and Julia I had a period where I ate Boeuf Bourguignon way too often. But it’s delicious and even if this recipe is as advanced as Julia Childs it’s easier for families to make after work as it doesn’t have as many steps. You would get a bit more taste and more tender beef if you cooked it a bit longer but this recipe is absolutely delicious as well.
