It's starting to get cold out - stormy and chilly all afternoon - and the aspens are turning gold again. When summer turns to autumn, my thoughts turn to comfort food: meatloaf, pot roasts, roast chicken and, of course, beef burgundy. It's wonderful with the deep flavor of mushrooms combined with robust red wine and grass-fed beef. A nice, slow stewing keeps the grass-fed beef (which some consider to be tough) tender.
Beef burgundy is an excellent way to use up homemade beef stock with all its micronutrients like calcium, zinc, glucosamine and naturally occuring gelatin while pairing it with other nutrient-dense additions like ghee which is rich in CLA (read more about CLA, disease and diet) and mushrooms which contribute a fair amount of selenium to the dish.
I am trying this in my slow cooker today. Perfect for a chilly day! Would you recommend cooking it on low or high?
Made this today. It was fabulous. It will be my beef stew recipe from now on. I will say though for us it fed 3 not 6. 🙂
I have just begun to search for alternative recipes for Boeuf Bourguignon. This one looks terrific. I can't wait to try it with grass fed yak. Thanks for such a great resource.
Yak is awesome. We love it and this recipe would be superb.

I have been invited to a Christmas Eve dinner. Beef Burgandy with salad, now I'd like to know what to bring? What will go good with this meal?
I bet you can't wait to get out to those farms. Grass-fed beef is SO much better, isn't it? I mean - not only because it has a better nutrient profile, but also because its flavor is far superior.

Mmmm it is that time of year. In a few weeks i'll be out in Western MA where it's possible to buy raw milk and grass fed beef from the farms. Can't wait. This looks so delicious!

This looks delicious! I just wrote a similar post about fall fare on my blog today too! Great minds think alike! 🙂
This dish looks great, it is something I have been wanting to make for a while, and this fall is going to be the perfect time!
Looks and sounds great. I love finding recipes to use broth in.
