Boeuf Bourguignon – perfect weekend comfort food.

I’ve just got back from skiing, so this week’s recipe is totally inspired by all that comfort food we were treated to in our cozy chalet in Val D’Isere after a blissful day on the slopes. This simple boeuf bourguignon is a fantastic dish to cook for a large group. It can be prepared up to 2 days ahead of time, or even earlier and frozen.

Here’s what to do… 

  1. Put the seasoned flour in a plastic bag, add the cubed meat and shake to cover each piece of meat with flour.
  2. Heat half the oil and gently brown the meat, putting it a casserole dish once finished.
  3. Add the remaining oil and gently fry the sliced onions, shallots, button mushrooms, garlic and pancetta. Add to the meat, making sure that all the juices are added from the frying pan.
  4. Pour the bottle of wine over the meat, add the bay leafs and thyme and stir.
  5. Put the lid on the casserole dish and cook at 140 C for 2 hours, stirring halfway through.
  6. Add additional seasoning if required. Serve with crushed potatoes, or wholegrain rice and green beans or a crisp salad.
