2014December0707-Boeuf Bourguignon-1

Just a quick observation: I watched Julie & Julia the other day and I didn’t enjoy Julie’s scenes. Anyway I noticed that when she made Julia Child’s Boeuf Bourguignon, her casserole (or Dutch Oven or whatever) was very messy and dirty. In fact a lot of photos I’ve seen of other people’s attempts at Julia Child’s Boeuf Bourguignon show the same mess.

If you really followed Julia’s directions carefully, the sides of the Dutch Oven should be clean or at least without that gunk.

Describing Beef as “tasting beefy”

I am stunned when I read descriptions like that. It’s a circular description, like saying chicken tastes like chicken.
