Beef bourguignon

26 September 2023

Beef bourguignon stands out as a comfort dish perfect for the cold of fall! This specialty combines tenderness of meat, sweetness of vegetables and depth of aromas.

We advise you to try this recipe with our new natural beef cubes which come from Bovins Charlevoix.

Why choose beef from Bovins Charlevoix ? The oxen receive a diet based on grass, but also cereals without any corn, from sustainable agriculture in Charlevoix. This is the perfect recipe for producing extremely tender and natural meat. The oxen live on pasture all their lives with access to an outdoor shelter to protect them from bad weather. Healthy animals, respect for the land and the environment, these are the priorities of breeders.
