Beef casserole.

Just had what might be the best casserole in a very long time.  Beef casserol with some red wine, beef and ale gravy with baked potato and a portion of Haggis.

Yum, to put it succinctly.

My FB feed showed an article about Beef Bourguignon. I've never had it, do not know where I could get it in my AO, but I sure want to try it.

Sounds vagely related to the dish which you praised (braised?).

Probably just the red wine, I have found anything like this in a slow cooker to work better than an oven though.  As long as you do not use too much alcohol or allow it to simmer off for a few minutes when cooking is done.

Mine is usually done in about 12 hours so I put it on in the morning and supper is ready when I am.

It appeals to the lazy bastard in me.

Make it :)

 

Brother and me did, for customary for us January 1st* lunch and despite plenty of hours spent on it it, it was worth it. :)

*And 2nd and 3rd and 4th... maybe we should have cut down on amount of ingredients... :)

It's difficult to completely screw up a slow cooker stew, and I find they're very tolerant of the ingredients you have available - literally "pot luck".

It's even tolerant of old shoe leather being the only meat (aka the freezer burned bits that were supposed to be protected in a plastic container, but the lid broke off).

What defines a British beef stew, though, is the quality of the dumplings, and that's a whole other topic.
