Savory Boeuf Bourguignon

Boeuf Bourguignon recipe

My husband and I watched Julie and Julia (good movie!) recently, and it inspired me to try some new recipes. Boeuf Bourguignon (also known as Beef Burgundy) was already pretty healthy to begin with, and was made with ingredients I already had on hand. It really is everything it is made out to be in the movie, and I look forward to making it again!
