Boeuf bourguignon

This is a modern version of the classical French braised beef dish from Burgundy. All the traditional garnishes are there: potatoes, bacon and onions, but there is also a foie gras dariole and parsley crouton circles.

Grilled beef fillet with béarnaise sauce and bridge-cut potatoes

The potato “fries” were delicious and the béarnaise sauce was the best I ever made. The steaks, however, were not.

One was supposed to be rare, and the one medium, but mine over-cooked so fast that both of these tenderloin cuts are beyond well-done. Ah well. Believe it or not, they still tasted alright.
