French cooking is often regarded as the fanciest out there but their cuisine isn’t just about 5-star restaurants. Bœuf bourguignon, is a relatively new dish from France and is made with red wine, usually burgandy, hence the name and braised with mushrooms, bacon and carrots. It’s a great recipe to make when you enjoy adding loads of flavour to a dish and serving something incredible to your family.
Layering flavours by cooking them in separate parts helps deepen the taste even more. The red wine, preferably burgundy, adds to the richness of the dish. Don’t cut the beef into pieces that are too small as they can dry out. If you want to lift the dish a bit, half a teaspoon of chili flakes goes a long way without affecting the spiciness. To garnish, some minced garlic, parsley and lemon zest freshens everything to a whole new level.
