What is boeuf bourguignon?
Boeuf bourguignon is a beef dish from Burgundy. It literally means beef the Burgundian way. In this dish, beef is slowly simmered in traditional Burgundy red wine and stock.
Usually with mushrooms, bacon and onions and you can also add other vegetables, such as carrot.
I’m not much of a wine connoisseur myself, so I just used a red wine I had lying around at home. If you want to make a real boeuf bourguignon, you should officially use wine from Burgundy ;)
How to make low FODMAP boeuf bourguignon?
Most stew dishes contain a lot of onion and that is usually the case with boeuf bourguignon. I omitted that from this recipe and served the dish with spring onion greens instead.
This dish consists of the following main ingredients:
- Chuck steak or stewing beef
- Bacon, cut into pieces
- Red wine
- Low FODMAP broth
- A little bit of gluten-free flour: I use Schär Mix It Universal.
- Tomato paste
In terms of vegetables, I add the following vegetables to the stew:
- Mushrooms: I used a mix of oyster mushrooms and mushrooms from a jar, because these are the only types of mushrooms that are low FODMAP. You can also use either one.
You can also add other vegetables if you like.
I also use bay leaves, fresh thyme and salt and pepper as seasonings.
Making stew with and without slow cooker
With slow cooker
I made this dish in the slow cooker. I borrowed a slow cooker for a while and I became a huge fan of it. I ended up buying a multicooker myself, this is a device that is also a pressure cooker in addition to a slow cooker. And you can make a lot of different dishes in it.
I have the Crock Pot Express pot.
This one is slightly more expensive than a slow cooker because it has multiple functions. You can get a slow cooker quit cheaply. This one from Crock Pot for example.
It takes 6-7 hours to make this dish in the slow cooker.
Without slow cooker
Don’t have a slow cooker? Then you can also easily make this dish in a Dutch oven. Then follow the recipe as indicated, but in step 6 put the ingredients in the Dutch oven and bring it all to a boil.
Also add the bay leaves and thyme, then lower the heat and let the meat simmer with the lid on the pan for three hours. Then add the mushrooms and oyster mushrooms, as described in the recipe and let it simmer for another half hour.
Then your beef bourguignon is ready!
