The best kind of dates are ones that showcase how much effort and care you put into them. So, I would suggest surprising your partner with a cooked meal. I’ve got just the right dish that will blow their mind… one of the most exquisite and famous French dishes, Beef Bourguignon! It would be the perfect dish to turn an ordinary dinner to one that you will not forget.

This will give you bragging rights, I am sure! I made this once for a group of friends, and now they are always asking when they can come for Beef Bourguignon again. The meat is so tender, which means it will always draw everybody back for more. The combination of flavours that build over the course of the simmering gives this dish a high-effort impression. Which is great, because you don’t have to admit that all you did was throw it all in together and leave it to itself!

Personally, I like to marinate the beef the night before but you don’t necessarily have to do that. I usually use a mixture made up of olive oil, pepper, salt and a hint of garlic and leave the steak to marinate overnight just so all the flavours sink in properly.

Beef Bourguignon
Instructions
  1. Put 1.25 tbsp of olive oil in a casserole dish or pan and bring it to sizzling point. Place the beef in the pan, piece by piece, until the beef becomes a rich, dark brown colour on both sides.
  2. Move the beef to a separate plate using a slotted spoon. Place the chopped onions in the casserole dish/pan until they turn brown.
  3. Return the beef into the pan and sprinkle the flour while you stir the contents of the pan around to let the ingredients soak each other up.
  4. Gradually pour in the Red Burgundy while stirring all the time.
  5. Add the chopped garlic, herbs, and seasoning. Put the lid on and keep the casserole dish/pan on low heat on top of the stove. Let this simmer on a low heat for 2 hours to tenderise the beef.
  6. After 1 hour of simmering, fry the shallots and bacon in a small frying pan using olive oil. Wait until they are coloured lightly then add them to the simmering beef mixture. At this point also add the mushrooms to the mixture and leave this to simmer on low for the last hour.
