Beef Bourguignon ... low carb and so delicious

If you are a regular reader, 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 is delicious, why not give it a try soon.


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

Heat the oil (to medium heat) in a frying pan. Add the shallots and mushrooms, fry/saute 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.

All the best Jan

Looks sooooo good, but I'd have to substitute Bourbon and make it "Beef Bourbonignon" because I am allergic to wines.

Tasty recipe - I'm thinking it would adapt well to a Slow Cooker meal? Would the wine need to be added later, though? (Please don't advise me to leave it out!!!!!!)

Rambler ...
Many thanks for your comment.
You may be interested in this slow cooker beef bourguignon recipe - yes with wine !!!

I would serve it with mashed swede though as it's lower in carbs than potato.


All the best Jan
