Beef Bourguignon

This is one of my favorite beef dishes.  I love, love, love the rich flavor of the veggies and how it all stews together in the slow on-the-stove cooking (over an hour).  The traditional wine for this is Burgundy but nowadays you’ll find it rebranded as pinot noir.  It’s okay to get the pre-sliced mushrooms and toss them in, but they smell so earthy when you’re chopping them.  And, honestly, any dish that starts out with cooking five slices of bacon…well, yeah!   I like to have this with mashed potatoes but any starch to absorb the lovely sauce would do.
