    Lowcarb Beef Bourguignon

    Ingredients:

    250 grams of diced braising steak
    A handful of shallots
    A handful of button mushrooms
    50 grams of smoked bacon lardons
    1 teaspoon of mixed dried herbs
    1 bay leaf (optional)
    2 beef stock cubes
    1 large glass of red wine
    Salt and pepper to taste
    1 table spoon of olive oil

    Method

    Heat the oil (to medium heat)in a frying pan. Add the shallots and mushrooms, fry/saute until golden brown, Remove from pan into oven proof casserole dish. Add bacon lardons to pan and cook until they are lightly browned, add to casserole dish. Finally put diced beef into frying pan and lightly brown each side of cubed beef then put into casserole dish.Make up the beef stock to approx. half to three quarters of a pint, but the red wine should make up about half of the liquid.Bring to a gentle simmer in the frying pan and add the mixed herbs, salt and pepper to taste. Pour over the ingredients in the casserole dish, add your bay leaf (optional). Cover and cook for approx two to two and a half hours at Regulo 4 Electric 180 stirring after the first hour. Serve with steamed broccoli and white cabbage or vegetables of your choice.

    Delicious, very easy to make and very low carb.

For almost seven years, I have asked medical professionals and naysayers, how do I maintain non diabetic BG levels on two Metformin other than low carb ? The silence has been deafening !

    When I saw this recipe I wondered if Eddie was giving me a hint here? .. because ...........we've a fish dish tonight low carb of course. sunny

    I'm going to do some roasted peppers with it, plus broccoli and mashed swede (never tire of buttery mashed swede) - this meal will also be less carbs than a slice of white bread.

    People say Low carb is too hard to do or too expensive to follow...Total fallacy! This kind of food is tasty,healthy and can be made to feed a family for around five pounds by getting all the ingredients from the likes of Aldi and Lidl. Smile
