“Sausage” Bourguignon Stew with Rice

"Sausage" Bourguignon with Rice

When it comes to comfort food, this sausage and rice stew will get the job done. Being a hearty meal, filled with potatoes, carrots, and other flavors, brings forth lots of added nutritious components. This is one of my favorites because it remind me of a “boeuf bourguignon” in French, which translates to Beef Bourguignon.
