2021.12.03 01:13 Datbriochguy Beef Bourguignon Help

TL;DR: Beef bourguignon comes out bland, bitter, and astringent in flavour and beef braised in red wine seems to be mushier and dryer than in any other dishes. Any recommendations?
Introduction I am an avid home cook who have been cooking for 6 years and has successfully cooked many dishes from different cultures (Chinese, SE asian, western, etc.). After having cooked red wine and beef dishes many times. Whether it's red wine glazed short ribs or beef bourguignon. I've always found that they all turned out disappointing to say the least. Bitter and astringent sauce with little flavour and falling apart yet dry and mushy af beef pieces.
The reason I haven't given up is that I've had good ones from restaurants and they aren't even the expensive ones. For example, when I lived in the UK, I had beef bourguignon in a French chain restaurant called Café Rouge and it blew my mind. Tender braised beef with a robust red winey (in a good way), and beefy sauce that's not bitter or astringent. My point is I truly believe that there is a beef bourguignon recipe out there that tastes good to me.
What I've tried so far First of all before anyone suggest this, I always reduce my red wine by half at the beginning. I've tried cooking this dish at least 20 times and so far none has come out satisfactorily.

  1. dirt cheap vs slightly better wine (nothing over $10)
  2. Less red wine (a cup or two) vs more red wine (practically drowning the beef)
  3. amount of tomato paste (little to a lot)
  4. seared vs unseared beef
  5. no sweetener vs adding sugar or honey at the end
  6. add acid at the end vs not
  7. homemade stock vs good storebought stock vs stock cube
  8. simmer on the stove vs different oven temps (130/160/180C) --> I primarily use beef chuck and it's dry no matter what I do
  9. short vs long cooking time (2-4h)
  10. rest in the juice overnight vs eat right away
  11. marinate in red wine vs not
  12. additional umami agents (worcestershire, soy sauce, fish sauce vs not)
Things I can potentially try
  1. use more expensive red wine --> will break my bank with potentially minimal change to the dish
  2. change to white wine --> not beef bourguignon any more
  3. change to beef shank/cheek which I find tend to be juicier (haven't used them to make beef bourguignon before) --> why do most people use beef chuck successfully including chefs?
As far as I can see, it seems to be the problem with me not liking red wine in braises. However, the beef bourguignon from Café Rouge doesn't seem to be shy on the amount of red wine they use either - it tastes like they use plenty. Their beef also doesn't have this mushy texture I tend to get when I braise with red wine (more so than other dishes). I really don't have any knowledge about wine so that may potentially be point of improvement but I can't see how that will change the dish that much. I searched google and all that I can see if people saying reduce the amount of wine or add more sugar. The thing the former makes the dish taste like a normal stew rather than beef bourguignon and and latter just adds sweetness that tastes jarring rather than improving the dish itself. If anyone has encountered this issue and successfully solved it I'd love to hear!

2021.12.03 01:13 efff12 Question: do y’all in warmer climates use water as ballast in your tires?

I work at a tractor dealer and a couple used tractors we got in recently have had water as ballast. Being from a cold state I have never seen this before and I’m glad I checked air pressures and noticed it was water before they froze.

2021.12.03 01:13 adam_728 STOP TELLING PEOPLE TO SHOWER!!!

I am so sick of smash “players” telling people to take a freaking shower!!! What if I don’t wanna take a shower?! That’s so freaking annoying bro showers take up so much time and they are honestly useless I only do it when my mom makes me get in the tub every few weeks and she has to wash me otherwise I wouldn’t even freaking take a bath! It is not my fault smash tournaments stink also! Maybe it’s ur fault for using all that “conditioner” and “soap” and making the whole place stink! They don’t even let me eat pizza before playing because they don’t want me to “ruin their controller” pffft!!! Wtf?! I do it at home and for some reason my controller is always extra shiny when I play after eating! Since when did freaking smash become so freakin annoying!! I turn 32 in a few weeks you guys should stop trying to tell ME what to do!

2021.12.03 01:13 Omega2178 Can someone help with with preset characters for race menu?

Right so apparently I’m not doing something right so can someone help me out by explaining to me like I’m 5 what the heck I’m doing wrong? What I’ve done is essentially this. Looked at my Skyrim SE data file and found no SKSE file. Made that, plugins, chargen, presets. I know this isn’t a problem with with mods because trying to save a preset of any character I make isn’t working and is not saved. I’m using mod manager 2 if that matters.

TLDR: thought it was fun they scooped this 12.8.2020
I tend to click on like every movie news article on the internet and either I totally missed this, or wrote it off. I see alot of comments on FB on articles like this by collider, wegotthiscovered, etc-and most people write it off as rubbish...but sometimes it seems they get the scoop early 😉
Honestly wonder if I read this, rolled my eyes, and vocalized "W..T...F...Ever" 🤣

2021.12.03 01:13 one-tempi Has anyone ever been totally checked out during finals?

2L here. I was broken up with the week before thanksgiving. Without sharing too many personal details it was sudden and devastating. I’m now two finals in and two to go and still am completely mentally checked out. I have been studying but I truly am not there. I feel so detached from reality.
Although my exact circumstances and complete lack of the ability to pull it together mentally may be unique, has anyone else gone through a finals season completely checked out? If so, what was it like for you and how did it turn out? Thanks
