  • 400g Small shallots
  • 700g Stewing beef, all visible fat removed, cut into bite-size pieces
  • 3 Garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 150ml Red wine
  • 425ml Beef stock
  • 1 Level tbsp tomato purée
  • Sprig of fresh rosemary

  • 50ml Vegetable stock
  • Pinch of grated nutmeg

  • Preheat your oven to 180C/350F/gas 4. Place a large frying pan sprayed with low-calorie cooking spray over a medium heat. Add the bacon and shallots and fry for 3-4 minutes until starting to brown. Add the beef. Stir-fry for 5-7 minutes over a high heat until browned.
  • Stir in the garlic, red wine, stock, tomato purée and herbs. Season, bring to the boil and then transfer to a casserole dish. Cover and cook in the oven for 2 hours.
  • Meanwhile, boil the swede for 12-15 minutes until tender. Drain. Add the stock and nutmeg, then season and mash.
  • Divide the bourguignon and mash between 4 plates, garnish with parsley and serve.
  • To reheat, defrost overnight in a cool place. Once thawed, transfer to the fridge. To cook, pour the bourguignon into a pan and bring to the boil, stirring. Cover and cook for 5 minutes. Reduce the heat to low and simmer for 20 minutes, stirring, until hot. Transfer the mash to a pan. Stir and cook over a low heat, adding a little extra vegetable stock if needed, for 5 minutes, or until hot. Garnish with parsley to serve.
