This flavorful and totally irresistible Beef Burgundy Pasta is pure comfort food! A cousin to boeuf bourguignon, it’s perfect on a chilly night.
Beef Burgundy Pasta
I have been the crazy lady wearing multiple layers of fleece and long-sleeve yoga tops, finished off with a not-so-artfully placed woven scarf and Uggs while working at the computer. It’s been miserably cold…and as the hubby reminds me, I have a very narrow comfort zone. The negative temperatures we’ve been having need an additional 90º before I’m a happy camper.
So it’s been the season of comfort foods: hearty, filling and delicious entrees like this Beef Burgundy Pasta. There’s every reason to crank up the oven and let beef, veggies, and wine commingle and magically transform into a flavorful pasta topping.
Tips for Making this Boeuf Bourguignon Pasta
We are huge fans of Julia Child’s classic Boeuf Bourguignon, and this recipe utilizes many of the same ingredients. But instead of simmering beef chunks in a wine sauce, you shred the beef then add the meat, veggies, and juices to penne pasta.
I recommend using a chuck roast as it’s more flavorful than a leaner cut of beef. Just make sure to remove some of the excess fat when prepping the meat. This has become a family favorite and I put it on the menu at least once in the dead of winter.
Buy an extra chuck roast and make my Easy Pot Roast Recipe, too.
