This gorgeous red Dutch oven looks innocent enough,but its the contents of this simple looking red pot that put me in a sort of stupor. Let's go further,hope you're ready.
|This is the finished product;mushrooms,onions and hunks of long-simmered beef just floating around in the most savory gravy I have ever tasted in my life. Deeee-lish.|
|This is how I felt after this meal,in a state of awe.I was done for and thank goodness I had done most of the dishes as I went along and only had to wash our plates and silverware.I mean it,OVER WITH.|
THIS WAS THE BEST MEAL I HAVE EVER HAD.
What is this pot full o' heaven contain? Beef bourguignon. I tried to make this meal oh say a year ago and failed miserably.I had been to a class at the Viking Cooking School that was based on the recipes of Julia Child.I tried to recreate the meal a few weeks later and well... it was edible.The prep takes some time and quite a bit of cooking time that makes a perfect chance to catch up on most of your prep dishes.The second time around I fared much much better.You live and you learn...and do dishes.
I think Julia would have kindly enjoyed my first go-round at her legendary dish.She would have probably enjoyed the buttered bread more,but nonetheless I tried.
The recipe comes from the amazing folks over at Simply Recipes .It is one of my most favorite cooking/recipe blogs and I know it will win your heart too.Enjoy!
