What (low carb) dinner did you enjoy last night ?

… ours was Beef Bourguignon, low carb and so delicious


Yes, if you are a regular reader of this blog, you may have already seen and tried this lovely low carb dish, it's one of our favourites, but you can never have too much of a good thing - can you? It really is delicious, why not give it a try soon.

Ingredients:
Serves Two
250 grams of diced braising steak
A handful of shallots
A handful of button mushrooms
50 grams of smoked bacon lardons
1 teaspoon of mixed dried herbs
1 bay leaf (optional)
2 beef stock cubes
1 large glass of red wine
Salt and pepper to taste
1 tablespoon of olive oil

Method:
Heat the oil (to medium heat) in a frying pan. Add the shallots and mushrooms, fry/sauté until golden brown, Remove from pan into oven proof casserole dish.

Add bacon lardons to pan and cook until they are lightly browned, add to casserole dish.

Finally put diced beef into frying pan and lightly brown each side of cubed beef then put into casserole dish.

Make up the beef stock to approx. half to three quarters of a pint, but the red wine should make up about half of the liquid.Bring to a gentle simmer in the frying pan and add the mixed herbs, salt and pepper to taste.

Pour over the ingredients in the casserole dish, add your bay leaf (optional). Cover and cook for approx. two to two and a half hours at Regulo 4 Electric 180 stirring after the first hour. Serve with steamed broccoli and white cabbage or vegetables of your choice.

Very delicious, very easy to make and very low carb.

Hope you enjoy it.

I may have to try that vegetarian version. Last night I had stir fry with cabbage, snow peas, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, and a homemade sauce. Maybe not as delightful as your dish, but quite tasty.

I've bookmarked the veggie version to try. It sounds delicious. X

I would love to try that vegetarian version. Mushrooms are such a great way to add "meat" to a dish.

CJ Kennedy said...

Thanks for the link to the vegetarian version. I am still in salad mode here. And enjoying it.

I make Boeuf Bourguinon from time to time, generally when we have company, and it is always a big hit. I used to serve it with egg noodles, but in recent years have switched to garlic mashed potatoes.

Had to google Lardon..we call fatbacks

Iris Flavia said...

Oh, did I feel bad reading your title! Hubby grabbed steak, but the bbq here is gas not charcoal, which I do not like. Woolies has hot food on offer, in fact it was so hot I could not read what it is, as it was on the bottom.
Was squid. I ended up with salt & vinegar crisps...

Denise inVA said...

I'm glad you repeated this recipe. I don't remember it before and I will definitely be making it. Thanks Jan :)

mamasmercantile said...

It certainly looks tasty, yum!

John R said...

The vegetarian version looks good to me. Last night we had split red lentil and yellow split pea dal. I'm not sure if it's low carb, but it's packed with protein and it'd delicious.

Would you be surprised to hear we had almost the same meal last night? I cooked a roast in my slow cooker all day and added wine at the very end of cooking! And we had healthy veggies to go along! It was wonderful! Happy Monday!
