Christine's beef bourguignon

    3 hours 20 min

    This is my own version of Beef Bourguignon, I usually do it on Sundays during the winter and I serve it with boiled potatoes. Everyone in my family loves this dish as the beef and vegetables melt in your mouth and the sauce is divine!

    I made this but with a twist. Instead of mash I made it with puff pastry. I didn't put it on top but just left it on the side and it was out of this world! Many thanks for the recipe though!! A big hit with the family and extended family too x  -  24 Mar 2014


    I like this recipe, it is easy and the result is very tasty and the meat tender and full of flavour. I cooked it in my slow cooker..  -  14 Mar 2014
