Tasty Brown Stew: Beef Bourguignon

Ingredients (4 servings)

Beef (4-5 cm dices) 400 g
Onion (minced) 2 (400 g)
Butter 20 g
Water 400 ml
Red wine 200 ml
Laurel 1
S&B Tasty Brown Stew Mix 160g 1/2 pack
【Garnish】 Mashed potatoes As needed
Black pepper As needed
Dairy cream As needed


  1. Mince the onions.
  2. Melt 10 g of butter in a frying pan, and stir-fry the onions until they turn brown, and take them out of the pan.
    * Stir-fry with high heat for 3 minutes to cook off the moisture, and then turn the heat down to low heat and cook for 40 minutes. This will bring out the sweetness of the onions.
  3. Add 10 g of butter to the frying pan, and saute the beef for 1-2 minutes until the surface browns. Add the red wine. When it comes to a boil, braise for 1 minute over low heat.
  4. Put the content from 【2】 and 【3】, water, and bay leaf (or bouquet garni) into the pan and cook over high heat. When it comes to a boil, remove the scum. Place the lid on the pan with a gap of 3-5 cm. Simmer over low heat for 30 minutes.
  5. Turn off the heat and remove the bay leaf (or bouquet garni). Add the S&B Tasty Brown Stew Mix by breaking it into pieces, then stir until it is melted. Turn on the heat again and simmer over low heat until the sauce thickens.
  6. Serve with the mashed potatoes and watercress. Add dairy cream and/or black pepper, as desired.
  7. 【Mashed potatoes】

    1. Boil 2 whole large unpeeled potatoes (400g). When boiled, peel the potatoes while they are hot and mash them.
    2. Put the mashed potatoes into a pan with 20 g of butter, 1/4 tsp of salt (not included in the ingredients list), a sprinkle of white pepper (not included in the ingredients list), and 1 tbsp of dairy cream. Turn on the heat and mix well.
