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.
