Beef Bourguignon Recipe
Using a slow cooker to gently cook this beef bourguignon recipe really enhances the flavour and the tenderness of the beef. You can prepare the ingredients the night before and then pop it in the slow cooker in the morning. It’ll be ready for you for your evening meal. Just serve it with some crusty bread and you’ll be in beef bourguignon heaven.
Trim the bacon steaks and dice into bitesized pieces.
Using half the oil, brown the bacon in a saucepan.
Once browned, remove from the pan with a slotted spoon and set aside.
Using the same saucepan, brown the beef and again, remove and set aside.
Add the remaining oil to the same saucepan, and brown the diced onion.
Put the slow cooker on to warm.
Slice the carrots into discs.
Once the slow cooker is warm, add the onions and raw carrots as the bottom layer.
In the saucepan, add the wine, tomato puree and garlic to the remaining juices and cook on a medium temperature for 2 minutes.
Layer the beef and bacon over the carrots and onions. Top with the mushrooms.
Pour over the wine mixture from the saucepan.
Cook on medium/high setting for 6 – 8 hours.
Serve with this beef bourguinon recipe with potatoes or crusty bread. I like crusty bread as it mops up all those rich juices that have been generated from cooking the ingredients in one saucepan first. Bon appetite!
