Q: I am making beef Bourguignon. It calls for 750ml of red Burgundy wine. I don’t like alcohol.

What can I use for a substitute?

Editor: Red wine is really the foundation of beef bourguinon, so we suggest making a regular beef stew instead as a non-alcoholic version. If wine is called for in a beef stew recipe, replace it with more chicken or beef stock instead.

Readers, what would you suggest as a replacement for the wine?
