Many fine recipes for beef bourguignon .. That classic dinner party dish.. The make life easy yet everyone thinks it was complicated dinner party dish.. Marinating the meat in wine for 24 hrs..adding boiled pork rinds scraped.. Lardons, those tincy onions and button mushrooms.. Finishing with a flame if cognac . ..
This ain’t that version.. And this ain’t no dinner party. It’s supper. And a darn fine one too…
So this is Mr Fitz’s easy beef bourguignon ..
Chop roscoff onions.. Half a Turkish red lomo pepper.. (Even though it’s actually grown in Spain .. Go figure??)..
Red ticket feather steak.. Perfect for this dish.. Although for even quicker speed sons nice blade steak would work too.. Yet that was not on red ticket. All chopped..
And fried off in goose fat.. Of course..
The juices from the onions, pepper and feather steak start making a wonderful sauce .. At this stage and the mushrooms.. Field and button as that was what was in the fridge..
Let that come together and .. Ready for this???
Add the contents of a packet of seasonings from the Coleman family.. (Sometimes it has to happen. )..
Add milk too..
Pop that all into the slow cooked on low.. Then warm .. Whilst making the spuds..
Par boil dirty potatoes.. Then into the colander .. Sunflower oil ( as am all out of mrs Middletons ..).. Sprinkled atop then the Japanese panko crumbs.. And done Japanese seasoning..
Into the tray.. Into the oven..
They take a while as these are not really the ideal roasting spud.. Yet that’s cool just let them do their thing.. They are ready when they look like this..
Boil up some French beans and peas with some unsalted French butter ..
And pop it all onto a plate..
Ahh wahh Lahhh ..
Beef bourguignon ala Mr Fitz..
Happy fiesta weekend ..
And the sheesh kebab?
My attorney went out with his wife and some pals last night to a very nice kebab house.. It’s sheesh in chigwell .. Google it.. It’s pretty good looking.. And so was this mixed grill pic he sent ..
Maybe he will take me sometime!!
