This classic dish, simmered to perfection in red wine, is guaranteed to make your loved ones' taste buds dance with delight. From young ones to the young-at-heart, this recipe is sure to leave everyone begging for seconds.

To ensure tenderness and deep rich flavour, we recommend selecting fresh gravy beef for this recipe. Cut it into large, succulent chunks that will melt in your mouth as they braise in the rich red wine sauce. Or for extra convenience pick up our already diced gravy beef next time you’re in store.

How to cook our Beef Bourguignon recipe, method:

  1. Begin the sauce by pouring the red wine into a medium saucepan. Bring to the boil briefly and cook off acidity.
  2. Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. In stages, place the gravy beef in the saucepan and brown in batches. Once the final batch is browned, add the carrot, celery, leek, onion and shallots to the remaining oil and juices and sauté for 5-10 minutes.
  3. Combine the beef and vegetables in a large baking dish. Stir through the thyme, bay leaves and speck. Pour over the wine and season with salt and pepper and cover with lid. Bring to the boil briefly on a medium-high heat. Reduce the heat to a low and cook for 40 minutes, stirring the dish occasionally.
  4. To prepare the carrot puree, bring carrots to the boil with salt. Boil carrots until soft then puree using a blender or food processor.
  5. Once meat is tender, add the carrot puree and mushrooms to the bourguignon and cook for a further 10-15 minutes.
  6. Once cooked, serve the beef bourguignon with mashed or roasted potatoes.
