Bœuf Bourguignon

Bœuf Bourguignon on rice.

I made this yesterday. I tried a different recipe, takes about an hour. That's too short IMHO, it did taste better the next day. I was going to use mashed yams but the yams went bad.
Recipe is here.

Boeuf braisé aux carottes

Boeuf braisé aux carrottes (Braised beef with carrots)

I made dinner based off a recipe for this but slightly modified.

Serves 2
~1lb stew beef
1 medium yellow onion
2 carrots (1/3lb)
2 sweet potatoes (1lb)
2 spigs rosemary
1 bay leaf
3 garlic cloves
1 cup red wine
2 cups water
1Tb tomato paste
olive oil

I cooked it all in a dutch oven. Warm up the dutch oven, then add olive oil. Once oil is warmed up, add beef and onions. Brown the beef then deglaze with wine. Add garlic, tomato paste, bay leaf, rosemary, and water. Cook for an hour. Add carrots and potatoes, and cook for 45 minutes. Remove the bay leaf and rosemary stems. Serve over rice or pasta.
