This is a version of the classic French dish, beef Bourguignon. The beef is cooked with dry red wine, fresh mushrooms, whole small onions, and carrots. The wine is an important feature of this dish, so choose a good quality red.

The stew is slow-simmered until the beef is very tender. The recipe calls for noodles, but mashed potatoes or rice would be excellent as well.

Serve this tasty stewed beef burgundy and noodles with a tossed salad for a fabulous meal.

Reader Comments

"Although this takes a bit of time to put together and to bake it is definitely worth it! This had the best flavor and was filling. I just used a red Cabernet wine because that's what I had on hand. It gave the beef an excellent flavor. Will definitely make this one again." Georgia
