Entrees » Beef Bourguignon
Beef bourguignon is a traditional stew from the Burgundy region of France, originally created using local, abundant ingredients of that region. Traditionally, Charolais beef (a local breed of cattle) was marinated and braised in hearty red wine Burgundian wine with aromatic vegetables and herbs. Marc Orfaly of Pigalle restaurant demonstrates this two-day process with beef chuck, dry red wine and traditional aromatics. Although the time commitment involved may seem intimidating, this is a surprisingly easy, 'forget-it-and-go' type of dish. After marinating the beef overnight, the stew slowly braises for three hours - no standing and laboring over the stove required! Guaranteed to be the most succulently-cooked beef you have ever tasted.
