    Beef Bourguignon

    This dish is a timeless classic, but the key to making this humble beef stew outstanding is using both good- quality beef and good red wine. Use a drinkable wine rather than anything labeled “cooking” wine. Serve this dish with buttered noodles, rice, or a loaf of warm, crusty bread.
