Bœuf bourguignon – one of my favorite cold weather dishes

Bœuf bourguignon

Beef bourguignon or bœuf bourguignon , also called beef Burgundy, and bœuf à la Bourguignonne, is a beef stew braised in red wine, often red Burgundy, and beef stock, typically flavored with carrots, onions, garlic, and a bouquet garni, and garnished with pearl onions, mushrooms, and bacon. It is also a dish consisting of a piece of braised beef with the same garnish, at which point it may be called pièce de bœuf à la bourguignonne.

It is a well-known French dish whose name probably refers to the use of wine. However, beef bourguignon is likely not a regional recipe from Burgundy.
