  • Medium




Today’s recipe is just what you need for a special occasion. Julia Child’s iconic beef bourguignon is an amazing flavorful stew that will keep you warm on a cold evening. This is the case when it’s safe to say that the dish is worth every minute spent.

Whether you’re a Julia Child fan or just want to spice up your daily menu with a classic French recipe, be sure to treat yourself and your loved ones to this hearty and delicious recipe.



Heat the oil in a large dutch oven. Roughly chop the bacon and cook it for a couple of minutes over medium heat. Set aside on a large dish leaving the fat in the pot.


Trim the beef brisket of fat, cut into medium-sized chunks, and pat dry. Brown all the sides in the hot oil. Add the beef to the bacon.


Slice the carrot and dice the white onion and add them to the dutch oven. Cook until softened. Mince the garlic, add 4 cloves to the dutch oven and cook for another minute.


Drain the fat leaving about a tablespoon in the pot and add the bacon and beef. Add salt, pepper, and flour. Toss and cook for 5 minutes. Add the pearl onions, wine, beef stock, tomato paste, crushed bouillon cube, and herbs. Bring it to a simmer.


Put in a preheated to 350 °F (180 °C) oven. Cook on the lower rack for about 3 hours or until the meat falls apart.


Heat the butter in a pan, add the rest of the garlic, cook until fragrant. Add the mushrooms. Cook for 5 minutes occasionally shaking the pan.


Strain the sauce through a colander. Remove the bay leaves and combine the sauce with the rest of the ingredients. Cook skimming off the fat until the sauce is thick enough to coat the back of a spoon lightly. Adjust the seasoning.

Complement this flavorful beef with creamy mashed potatoes or any other side with a mild flavor. Bon appetit!


Like many people nowadays, I love to explore new places. My favorite type is slow travelling, when you can really blend in with locals and learn about new cultures and languages. But I think there are also perfect times for enjoying freshly baked pastry, a cup of fragrant coffee, and a good movie in the comfort of your own home. I guess I'm kind of a cultural omnivore, and I watch different types of movies, but the ones about art and food inspire me the most!
