Ron Beef Burgundy

Fall has to be my favorite season.  Something about the crisp cool air and the smell of leaves just gets me going.  To some, a pumpkin spice latte is their favorite indulgence of fall.  Mine, a warm, hearty, beef, stew-type concoction.  Really, hearty meals just taste better in cool weather, it’s a fact. This recipe is adapted from Paula Deen.  I had to make some adjustments while making this dish for the first time, but it turned out amazing!  The 2 major adjustments were adding a roux and seasoning at the end.  The original recipe calls to season the meat only.  The sauce needed a thickener…next time, I will flour the meat before browning.  And please please please, always give your food a taste before serving so you can adjust the seasoning.  As Nate was chowing down I casually said “So, tomorrow, we are starting our new diet.  We can only eat eggs and salad.” Nate exclaimed “WHAT?!?!?!”  I replied “April Fools :)” Nate “It’s not April…”  Me “Uhh, October Fools, I mean trick or treat!” It has been my mission in life to find THE perfect red and white wine to cook with.  Something that tasted great, added yummy flavor to dishes, and didn’t break the bank.  The search has ended and here it is: Ron-Beef-Burgundy-3 There is also an Apothic White which I think is equally as successful in all 3 accounts.  Try it!Give this recipe a shot and if anything…you’ll have some leftover wine to enjoy.  Not a bad deal 🙂 Ron-Beef-Burgundy-1 Ron-Beef-Burgundy-2  Ron-Beef-Burgundy-4 Ron-Beef-Burgundy-5 Ron-Beef-Burgundy-6 Ron-Beef-Burgundy-7 Ron-Beef-Burgundy-8 Ron-Beef-Burgundy-9 [yumprint-recipe id=’4′]
