Great Recipe

Being retired gives me a bit more time to explore different recipes. I sure hit on a winner today: Ina Garten's (The Barefoot Contessa) Beef Bourguignon.

It was nowhere near as complicated as I've thought (Julia Child has a recipe as well that was a bit intimidating), and turned out fabulously!

Now that I've made it once, I can see ways to tweak it to fit our more low-fat lifestyle, but I would seriously consider using is "as is" for a nice dinner with company.

Oh, and I used buffalo meat.

That looks delicious! I've never "flamed" a dish before.

What red wine did you use?

I have fond memories of my beloved Mom making Beef Bourguignon. This recipe looks fabulous and one that I will put on the list to make. Thanks for sharing!

Beef Bourguignon

I used a cabernet sauvignon - only because I LIKE it, and believe in a share for the chef!

It was the cognac that did the flaming. That almost ended up as a fail: The demonstration was done on a stove built into a kitchen island. My stove is against a wall with a built-in microwave/vent unit above it. When I lit the bourguignon off, the flames reached the base of the unit! I took it off the stove and then the smoke alarms went off (they've always been super sensitive). Nothing like a little excitement on a snowy Sunday afternoon.

It sounds delicious. I will have to look it up. That would make a fun Christmas dinner. My grandchildren would love the show of flames!

Barefoot Contessa is one of my favorite Food Network shows. Ina always makes something delicious, elegant, but usually pretty simple to create.

I used her recipe to make cheesecakes for my daughter's wedding and they were a huge hit.

I loved watching Julia Child as a kid. I always wanted to be her because she was able to cook and someone else did the dishes!
