Beef Bourguignon – Way Back Wednesday

Today marks Julia Child’s 100th birthday. To celebrate, I’ve gone back in my archives to February 2010 to reintroduce you to the Everyday Food magazine version of her classic Beef Bourguignon.

I’ve wanted to make this since seeing Julie & Julia. A pretty easy version was recently featured on the PBS series Everyday Food and then in the most recent edition of Everyday Food’s magazine. If you don’t subscribe, you need to.  You really do.  Go. Subscribe now. There’s no time to waste. It’s seriously one of the best mail-days of the month when this little digest of recipes from Martha arrives in the mailbox. I rush inside the house, settle down at the kitchen table and plan my attack on churning out the easy and tasty recipes featured inside. This one was a winner and the perfect Sunday/Valentine’s Day meal to share with that special someone you adore. So what if the prep for the meal took nearly an hour. The additional three hours it braised in the oven made for one of the most tender and flavorful beef recipes I’ve ever had. Here’s the recipe.

Also, Tiffany over at Domesticated Academic, is giving away a copy of Julia’s Mastering the Art of French Cooking.  You should jump on over there and enter to win it.
