This is a excellent recipe for Beef Bourguignon/classic french beef stew! I made it yesterday, and it turned out wonderful! My family and I loved it! I love soups/stews any time of the year so I did not let the fact that it is “July” stop me from making this.. However, I did not want to heat up my house using the oven for a long period of time, so after I put it together I cooked it in my crock pot and it worked well! I am happy with the results even though I think the carrots and potatoes took a bit longer to get tender.. Next time if I make it in the crock pot I will add the carrots and potatoes sooner..
I’ve made this recipe at least five times over the past year, and shared it with friends. We all agree that it is the best beef stew recipe out there. I appreciate how well written the recipe is too. I love that you don’t miss any details, like what heat to brown the meat on. I know how to cook, but it really makes the recipe more approachable. I am making a batch for dinner right now, and just had to take a moment to thank you!
