Beef {Beer} Bourguignon

I needed some time


When bad things happen and life sucker punches you in the gut, it takes some time to process and figure out how to accept the unacceptable.  All I can really say today is that there is no kind of heartache like losing someone you love.  It’s particularly painful when it’s senseless and unexpected.

I still need some time.

Life is fragile, friends.

Find comfort where you can.

Beef {Beer} Bourguignon

Ingredients

  • 6 - 8 pieces bacon, cut into 1 inch pieces
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 1/2 - 3 pounds chuck roast, cut into 1 1/2 - 2 1/2 inch cubes
  • salt and pepper
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 2 cups malty beer (I used my own home brew Irish Red)
  • 5 or 6 fresh thyme sprigs (or use dried thyme to taste)
  • 2-3 garlic cloves, pealed and roughly chopped
  • 2 onions pealed and quartered
  • 3 -4 baking potatoes, pealed and cut into 1 inch pieces
  • 2 cups baby carrots, or 5-6 regular carrots pealed and cut into 1 inch pieces

  • 4 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 3 teaspoons flour
  • chopped parsley for garnish, if desired

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 250
  2. Brown bacon in a Dutch oven or heavy bottomed pot over medium heat and set aside on a paper towel lined plate
  3. Generously salt and pepper the beef
  4. Increase heat to medium high and brown beef on all sides - work in batches and set each batch aside in a bowl - add olive oil as needed
  5. When all beef is browned add tomato paste and stir for about a minute
  6. Add beer and stir to scrape up all the brown bits
  7. Add beef and bacon back to the pot, cover and cook for 3 - 3 1/2 hours
  8. Add garlic, potatoes, carrots, and mushrooms, and bake another 45 minutes to an hour or when potatoes and carrots are fork tender
  9. Use a fork to smash flour and butter together in a bowl
  10. Transfer the stew to the stove, add flour/butter and bring to a boil

NOTES:

  1. Most beef bourguignon recipes use pearl onions and we don’t like them, but feel free to use them if you like them
  2. I recommend a malty beer for this recipe, such as a red or a porter
  3. Serve with bread, biscuits, or in a bread bowl and garnish with parsley
  4. A wise friend told me to hug and kiss the people you love. Do it.
