Made world famous in Julia Child’s book “Mastering the Art of French Cooking“, and the more recent film Julie & Julia, beef bourguignon is prepared with traditional ingredients like bacon (lardons), small white onions and mushrooms. The secret to a successful beef bourguignon holds the tenderness of the meat which simmers for 3 to 4 hours in a generous wine sauce.
