I do so love a good slow cooked rich full flavoured Boeuf Bourguignon so I thought why not then try it with mince and I must say it comes in a very close second. This is not the most holiday inspired meal but it it super tasty; well now that I think about it, this is a great meal to prepare if you are having family and friends around over the festive season as you don’t have to be in the kitchen at all once you have prepared everything and have it simmering away on the stove.
1 onion sliced
2 small carrots chopped
400g beef mince
250ml red wine – I used Chateau Libertas
15ml beef stock powder
15ml tomato paste
Salt and pepper to taste
12 button mushrooms halved
Sprig of thyme
- Sauté the onion and carrots in a little olive oil.
- Add the mince and brown.
- Add the wine, stock, tomato paste and salt and pepper and bring to the boil.
- Add the mushrooms and thyme and simmer covered very slowly for an hour.
- Remove the lid to reduce the remaining liquid slightly.
