For our version of this definitive beef stew, we braise diced beef very gently in reduced red wine and veal stock, flavoured with herbs, garlic and the traditional addition of caramelised shallots, lardons of bacon and button mushrooms. Where we break with tradition is that we don't use a flour/butter roux to thicken the sauce, keeping the dish lighter and gluten free.

While we make every effort to ensure dishes are free of cross-contamination, our kitchen is not allergen free.
