Boeuf Bourguignon.

Friday 28th October 2011

“What veg shall we have with that then?” I would ask out loud.

“Carrots?” Dad would say.

If Dad had his way carrots would be served with every meal. For some reason he has a penchant for them. Pile them high on his plate & he’ll eat them. Zephy likes a carrot too & happily eats them raw as an afternoon snack. I think it’s the sweetness that lures them in. They are very non-offensive, they go with most things & can be stored for ages without going off. You can’t ask for much more from a veg.

I let the bourguignon cook for about an hour & a half on a low heat. I wanted to have a little bite left in the carrots & be able to chew on the meat. The last time I made it, I cooked it for so long it all disintegrated.

    My mom used to make this meal often as well. She would cook it in the crock pot: potatoes first, then onions, then meat, and finally carrots. Top with seasonings and a bit of water, cover, turn on HIGH and walk away. I liked it. 🙂

  2. I did try making this once, the recipe had red wine in it and I wasn’t a big fan. Yours looks perfect! Yum!
