Every beef cut has its own taste and texture, which makes it ideal for a specific type of dish. For instance, beef bourguignon is usually made with beef chucks, flanks, tendrons or brisket ribs. Some cooks love to add an oxtail to the mix! This dish was created centuries ago in Burgundy, by peasants who wanted to use all parts of their farm animals. It requires a lot of patience: the meat needs to marinate in red wine for at least 24 hours, before simmering for about 3 hours with some bacon cubes, garlic, onions, carrots, mushrooms and dried herbs. Beef bourguignon goes amazingly well with mashed potatoes or toasted bread.
Other mouth-watering beef dishes include sweet bread with mushroom sauce, peanut beef stew and beef à la mode. The latter dates back from the middle of the 17th century. It consists of beef slowly steamed-cooked with sliced carrots, small onions, white wine and Provence herbs. Thanks to this cooking method, the meat acquires a smooth, melting texture. Like the vast majority of French beef recipes, this specialty is always served with a glass of red wine of character.

There is a great variety of pork and beef sausages in France. In each region, cooks have come up with exquisite specialties to showcase the taste of French beef. Rosette is a saucisson from Lyon, a large town in the south-east of the country. Chorizo sausage comes from Spain and Portugal, but it is extremely popular throughout France, especially around the Pyrenees. It owes its red colour to the use of paprika in its original recipe. Sometimes, a French sausage can be flavoured with cheese. In Occitania, roquefort cheese is often added to dry-cured beef sausages in order to create a unique delicacy.
