We had Beef Bourguignon 3 days ago, it’s one of my all-time favorite dishes, especially on a cold winter weekend. This is one dish that really gets better within the next 4-5 days and the natural meal for this amazing stew was fresh pasta bourguignon dish, it’s soooo good.
The thing I like about this Pasta is that it’s almost effortless, I mean the sauce is ready, OK …almost ready, so there is plenty of time focus my efforts on the fresh pasta.
Fresh pasta bourguignon – guidelines
The sauce is had reached the optimal flavors after a few days and I can use it as is, however when I come to make a pasta sauce, it’s not enough, I need to emphasize the beef flavors without making it too heavy or just having a Beef Bourguignon with pasta, I want to take it to the next level.
In order to do just that I need sharpen the natural beef stew flavors and bring additional tastes like acidity which will come from the dry white wine and balsamic vinegar.
When making a stew, all ingredients mix to form a wonderful beef sauce, I want to take this basic sauce and dismantle it, bring out, emphasizing additional flavors like garlic and onion that will get our sauce complete and finally get a fresh feeling to this heavy sauce in the form of fresh parsley on top.
Let’s talk about the Pasta
Julia child which is my guru when it comes to beef bourguignon never referred to pasta anywhere near this stew, she mentioned mashed potatoes or rice to accompany this dish, it makes sense, pasta comes from a different region and was not common in the traditional French kitchen.
I find that making fresh pasta is by far the best way to go with a bourguignon leftovers, the pasta takes the dish to a whole new level and really gives this amazing beef stew new upgraded life.
I wouldn’t go the distance in making the fresh pasta bourguignon dish the same day as the stew, it’s too much work, this is a classic leftover dish that takes advantage of a great sauce and great pasta.
