While I was perusing the blogs listed on lowcarbblogs.net, I found this amazing recipe for beef stew. Beef stew is one of those homey recipes that are a necessity at this time of year. The recipe shares many characteristics with beef bourguignon, such as the braising in red wine and tomatoes, with those harbingers of umami, mushrooms and anchovies. Using mushrooms in a recipe along with tomatoes, anchovies, and beef bring out the beef flavor so much more than just using the beef and beef stock.
To see the master making the original beef bourguignon, and by master I mean Julia Child, please watch the video below.
