Beef Bourguignon - Wellborn 2R Beef

Beef Bourguignon


Beef Bourguignon

Delta Hotels by Marriott Wellborn 2R Steakhouse Executive Sous Chef Darshon Haines prepared this dish for us at the ranch using our stew meat. They are going to start offering it as a special at the restaurant soon. It was incredibly flavorful, and our stew meat was so tender. Stew meat kind of gets locked into people thinking it is only for making stews - but Chef Darshon took it to a whole new level with this dish. We hope you try it for yourself! And adjust the spices as you like them. Chef Darshon served this over creamy parsnips that were beautiful flavored, but it could also be served over mashed potatoes, rice or noodles. The grilled vegetables were perfectly seasoned and offered a light crunch of texture. This recipe will serve approximately 10 people so you can adjust ingredients up or down depending on how many people you are cooking for.
