A note about serious food allergies

Bourguignon means beef, right? (Or bœuf if you want to be a French fancy pants. Sorry, pantalon fantaisie.) We beg to differ. The richness and depth of bourguignon works well with meaty mushrooms, with fresh carrots and onions as well. The whole shebang sits on a bed of cheesy polenta, bringing another level of flavor and texture that's just fantastic. What does bourguignon mean? This meal right here.

Customize It Instructions

  • Meatlovers! If adding protein, season with a pinch of salt and pepper and cook with 1 tsp. olive oil in a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat. If using steak strips, separate into a single layer and pat dry. Stir occasionally until no pink remains and steak reaches minimum internal temperature, 4-6 minutes. Rest, 3 minutes. If using whole chicken breasts, pat dry, and, on a separate cutting board, cut into 1” pieces. Stir occasionally until chicken reaches minimum internal temperature, 5-7 minutes. If using Impossible burger, break up burger until heated through, 4-6 minutes. If using Italian sausage, remove from casing, if necessary. Break up sausage until no pink remains and sausage reaches minimum internal temperature, 4-6 minutes. Add to dish as desired.

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Peel, trim, and cut carrot into 1/2" slices on an angle.

    Cut mushrooms into 1/4" slices.

    Stem thyme.

    Peel and halve onion. Thinly slice one half (the rest is yours to use as you please!)

  2. 2

    Cook the Mushrooms

    Place a large non-stick pan over medium heat and add 1 Tbsp. olive oil. Add mushrooms to hot pan and stir occasionally until browned, 5-7 minutes.

    Transfer mushrooms to a plate. Keep pan over medium-high heat.

  3. 3

    Cook the Vegetables

    Add 2 tsp. olive oil, onion, and carrot to hot pan. Stir often until lightly browned, 3-5 minutes.

    While vegetables cook, make polenta.

  4. 4

    Make the Polenta

    Make Sauce and Finish Dish

    Return mushrooms to pan with vegetables and stir in flour until no dry flour remains. Add 1 Tbsp. tomato paste (remaining is yours to do with as you please!), 3/4 cup water, thyme, 1/4 tsp. salt, and mirepoix base. Bring to a boil and stir constantly until sauce thickens slightly, 30-60 seconds.
