Beef Bourguignon (+ the Cheats Version!)

Snaked this recipe from one of my best mate's mum, then just made a few cheeky changes to make it my own.

Bourguignon ingredients:

  • 1 kg beef chuck, cut into 3cm cubes/pieces

  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

  • 60g grass-fed butter

  • 10 baby onions

  • 400g button mushrooms

  • 3 rashers of bacon, sliced and diced

  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed

  • 1/4 cup coconut or tapioca flour

  • 1 cup beef stock

  • 1 cup dry red wine

  • 2 bay leaves

  • 3 teaspoons of dried/fresh oregano

Mash ingredients:

  • 4 white potatoes, peeled and chopped into cubes

  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt

  • 1/2 teaspoon of pepper

  • Tablespoon of grass-fed butter


  1. Heat half the oil in a skillet

  2. Add the beef in batches, cooking until browned

  3. Remove from the skillet

  4. Add the remaining oil and butter to the same skillet, plus the mushrooms, onions, garlic and bacon

  5. Stirring, cook until onions are lightly browned

  6. Stir in the flour, heat until mixture is browned

  7. Remove from the heat, and gradually stir in stock and wine

  8. Continue stirring over heat until the sauce thickens

  9. Return the beef and any juices to the skillet, then add the bay leaves and oregano

  10. Simmer, covered and stirring occasionally, for about 2 hours until beef is tender

  11. Shortly before you are ready to eat, add the chopped potatoes to a pot of boiling water and cook until soft

  12. Once potatoes are soft, drain, then mash with the salt, pepper, and butter

  13. Remove bay leaves from the bourguignonne mixture

  14. Lay a few scoops of mash potato onto a plate/bowl

  15. Top with a few scoops of the bourguignonne mixture and enjoy!

Cheats Method (no extra virgin olive oil necessary):

  1. Add all bourguignon ingredients, minus the flour, to a slow cooker

  2. Cook on low for 6-12 hours

  3. Mix the flour with a little bit of water in a mug until it forms a paste, then stir this through the borguignonne mixture around 10-minutes before serving

  4. Follow steps 11-15 from above!
