The word bourguignon comes from a dish that is French and is called Buruandy in English. Bourguignon is similar to a beef stew but has a few variations of ingredients and much more in depth flavoring. A classic bourguignon has the presence of red wine in the recipe, which we have replaced with grape juice, but tried and tested to ensuring this halal bourguignon recipe is thick and hearty with loads of flavour!

Ingredients for 4 people:
1 Haloodies diced beef
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 1/2 tablespoons flour
1 1/2 cups red grape juice (100% juice no sugar added)
1/2 cup red grape vinegar
2 carrot, sliced
1 onion, sliced in julienne
3 cups beef stock (preferably home made, remember you want something rich with flavor to enhance the flavor)
1 tablespoon tomato paste or tomato puree
2 cloves mashed garlic
½ teaspoon thyme leaves

6.Bring it to simmering point on the stove.
7.Cover the pot and place it on very low heat and simmer for 3 hours.
8.While the stew is cooking, prepare onions and mushrooms. For the onions: Melt 1 tablespoon butter in a frying pan and sauté the peeled onions until golden brown. Add beef stock until they’re almost covered and simmer for 20-25 minutes, or until almost all the liquid disappears and they’re tender but keep their shape. Set aside.
9.Prepare the mushrooms as well: quarter and sauté them in 2 tablespoons butter. Keep on stirring until they’re nicely brown. Set aside.
10.When meat is tender, Put onions and mushrooms over the meat.
11.Skim the fat off. Simmer for 2-3 minutes. Skim additional fat if it rises. The sauce should be thick enough to coat a spoon. If not, boil it until it thickens. If it’s too thick, stir in some stock or bouillon to make it lighter.
