OK so I served this at my birthday party, in the garden of the Louvre in Paris as the sun set on a summer night. The previous year, my Parisian friends had given me a gift certificate to a cooking school. They were so impressed by the bourguignon that they assumed I learned it from a professional chef. I told them I did to make them feel better. But in fact it was this beef bourguignon from allrecipes. Just so you get a sense how popular this was, I made 13 portions of this recipe and it was devoured by 8 people in 15 minutes and they were demanding more. BTW people are saying you need fancy wine but I didn't even use burgundy, rather a cheap table wine. It soured the marinade just a little but I was able to counter it by generously adding salted butter near the end, which also thickened the sauce to a comfortable texture. Eating this is PURE PLEASURE.
