To read the recipe Julia Childs uses to prepare this... "Oh my! It is a wonder anyone tries it!" was, I believe, my own word for word quote.
Frankly, I tend to avoid any recipe labeled as difficult or complicated... unless I'm trying to figure out a way to do it so that it is less so.
This time, I succeeded.
Beef bourguignon doesn't have to be THAT hard. Certainly not SIX hours hard... Who has that sort of time? I certainly don't!
And it was still super yummy.
In fact, my family is strongly petitioning that this become our Easter dinner tradition.
I don't think it will take much to persuade me... I may, in fact, already be convinced.
The single stipulation?
