My Version of Julia Child's Beuf Bourguignon!

One of the many things that I enjoy learning is cooking. Of course I do cook everyday for our family of ten but I would like to learn how to cook some new dishes.

So off to the library I went and I took out the book Mastering the Art of French Cooking.

My husband loves beef stew but I never knew how to make a good beef stew so I found this recipe "Beauf Bourguignon" from Julia's cook book. This book is very thorough and I think that I will have to start saving up for a copy of my own.

I have to add that I did not use the 3 cups of red wine that Julia used in the recipe. I replaced this with 2 cups of red grape juice and 1 cup of water. So if this changes the recipe too much and it does not qualify to be called Beuf Bourguignon well than so be it :)

I decided to make it last Saturday and rewarmed it for our Sunday lunch after church. This worked out wonderfully! As a matter of fact Julia states in her book that it tasted better the next day and I think I must agree!

I found a site with the full recipe and directions if you want to give a try for your self!
Here are a few photos of the process. I hope you will give it a try I am sure you and your family will enjoy it.
