Quick Beef Bourguignon

    3 hours 20 minutes

    This is a quick version of beef bourguignon that has all the essential ingredients but is easy to make. It still creates a fabulous rich stew that I like to serve with potatoes.

    I made this but with a twist. Instead of mash I made it with puff pastry. I didn't put it on top but just left it on the side and it was out of this world! Many thanks for the recipe though!! A big hit with the family and extended family too x  -  24 Mar 2014  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)


    I like this recipe, it is easy and the result is very tasty and the meat tender and full of flavour. I cooked it in my slow cooker..  -  14 Mar 2014  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
