When I was a kid, this is something that my mom would make on special occasions. Bourguignon de Boeuf, also known as Boeuf Bourguignon or Beef Bourguignon...which ever that you like to call it, it is one of my favorite dishes! This is a big hardy meal and is a typical meal for central to southern parts of France for Sunday, holidays or special gatherings. It does take some work, but it's well worth it. As in most French cooking, the prep work is the time consuming part, the cooking tends to be rather simple. Prepare all the ingredients before you start cooking, you should be able to go from step to step without having to do additional prep work along the way. This should be done in a heavy Dutch oven, cast iron style pot...like Le Creuset oven.
