It is well worth the wait and is most suitable for your family meals or for entertaining, so it really is a recipe to fall in love with!

2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tbsp (1 oz/25g) butter
1 tablespoon flour
1 tablespoon tomato puree
2 cloves garlic (minced)
2¼ lbs (1kg) small potatoes
1 bouquet garni
Salt and pepper to taste
2 tbsp chopped parsley
For The Marinade
1 bottle of good red wine
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 small carrot
1 onion chopped
2 shallots, chopped
1 clove garlic, chopped
1 tbsp chopped parsley
1 tsp dried thyme
1 bay leaf
Putting It Together
Slice the beef into large cubes and place in a large bowl with all the ingredients for the marinade.
Place in refrigerator until the next day. Easy!
Prepare to cook the beef bourguignon 3 hours before serving.
Drain the meat and dry it with paper towel (It will not brown if it is too wet).
Heat the oil in a heavy-bottomed pan and brown the meat on all sides.
Add the vegetables from the marinade and 2 tablespoons of the butter.
Simmer for 15 minutes.
Sprinkle the flour over the mixture and stir until well blended.
Cover with the marinade.
Bring to the boil.
Add seasoning to your taste.
Add ½ cup (4 fl oz/125 ml) water
Add the tomato puree, garlic, and bouquet garni.
Cover and simmer for about 2 1/2 hours.
Cook the potatoes in boiling salted water until soft. Serve boiled or creamed.
The stew is served in a bowl and the potatoes served separately.
Garnish with the chopped parsley.
You could also have polenta instead of the potatoes if you choose, for a change. Absolutely yummy!
