Beef Bourguignon is a delicious French stew cooked in red wine that will warm you up in winter. Learn how to make Beef Bourguignon with this simple recipe.
One of my goals with NoRecipes is to show you how to make restaurant quality meals that a person who works full time can make. This means taking shortcuts where it won't be noticed while taking the "scenic route" where it counts. When it comes to stocks, I reserve homemade stock for dishes like clear soups, where the stock is the centerpiece. For other dishes, like this Beef Bourguignon, most people wouldn't notice the difference between a homemade stock and pre-made alternative.
When Goodbite.com and Campbellskitchen.com asked me to come up with a "Sunday Supper" idea using one of their soups, Beef Bourguignon seemed like the perfect dish. Traditionally considered complicated and time consuming, I use a few shortcuts that cut your prep time down to about 30 minutes, and the rest of the work is done by your oven.
