Slow Cooker Beef Bourguignon and Crock Pot Beef Bourguignon
Slow cooker beef bourguignon and crock pot beef bourguignon is a very special dish whatever the name of your device. The recipe and instructions are the same.
This classic French dish is rich, flavourful and keeps well. If you need to eat it the next day, you will find it tastes even better.
I served this dish with a dollop of sour cream which contrasts well with the richness. Mashed potatoes are great for mopping up the sauce.
Ingredients for Slow Cooker Beef Bourguignon
One pound (450 gms.) Stewing Steak
Half a pound (225 gms.) Bacon
Six Shallots or other small onions
A sliced Carrot
Six ounces (150 gms.) Mushrooms
Two tablespoons (140 gms.) Tomato Puree
A Chicken Stock Cube
Two Bay Leaves
A tablespoon of dried Parsley
A teaspoon of dried Thyme
A glass of red wine
A little Soy Sauce
Chop the steak and the bacon into small cubes and add to the pot.
Peel the onions and put them in whole.
Add the sliced carrot, sliced mushrooms and the tomato puree.
Mix the Stock cube with half a cup of hot water and add, along with the parsley, thyme, bay leaves and a sprinkling of soy sauce.
Mix and cook for eight hours on low. Add the red wine half an hour before cooking finishes and stir in.
If you want to thicken the sauce, mix two teaspoons of cornflour with a little water and stir that in as well.
Buying sliced bacon for Slow Cooker Beef Bourguignon is extravagant. Most stores sell "cooking bacon" much cheaper. Cooking bacon is the last bit of the joint that won't fit through the slicer.
