Bite with Belkys: Beef Burgundy from Bistro 1902
Cooking for a large family gathering is easier than you think. A South Florida chef prepares a tasty, traditional French dish your entire family will enjoy. Let's grab a Bite with Belkys.
The Restaurant: Bistro 1902
The Dish: Beef Burgundy
2 lbs. of top round beef, chopped
oil blend (1/2 olive oil and 1/2 canola oil), as needed
2 white onions, chopped
4 bay leaves
6 garlic cloves, minced
12 white button mushrooms, chopped
3 slices of pancetta (optional)
1/2 cup of all purpose flour
1 bottle of red wine
3 cups of demi-glace
1 lb. of pasta
1 Tbs of butter
salt, to taste
pepper, to taste
Method of Preparation:
-Start by searing top round beef in a hot pot with oil. Then, remove the meat from the pot and set it to the side.
-In the same pot, cook chopped onion, bay leaf, garlic and white button mushrooms. You may also add diced pancetta.
-Once the vegetables start getting golden, place the beef back into the pot.
-Next, add all purpose flour, red wine and demi-glace. If you don't have demi-glace, you can also use a beef gravy. Make sure the liquid covers the meat and the vegetables. Let it come to a boil.
-After, cover the pot and finish cooking it in a 300 degree oven for about three hours. You can stir it every 20 to 25 minutes.
-Before the meat is ready, cook some pasta and toss it in a hot pan with butter, salt and pepper.
Serve the beef burgundy over the pasta.
Serving Suggestion: Brouilly
