Beef Recipes

Boeuf Bourguignon (1) Bouef Bourguignon (2)

Beef bourguignon or Bœuf bourguignon, also called beef Burgundy, and Boeuf à la Bourguignonne, is a well-known, traditional French recipe originating from the Burgundy region of France.

Essentially, it is a stew prepared with beef braised in red wine (ideally a good red Burgundy), and beef broth, flavoured with garlic, onions and a bouquet garni, with pearl onions and mushrooms added towards the end of cooking.

Beef Stew

Also known as Daube de boeuf à la Provençale, Beef stew is a traditional family meal and there is nothing quite like it!

It is called daube because of the old earthenware container it was cooked in.

There are variations of this beef stew recipe but they are all fantastic. It is best started the day before as it improves in flavour.
