Boeuf Bourguignon Easy
Such a cheat this one!
In darkest winter, not only is this version better than having no boeuf Bourguignon at all but it also more than holds its own against the real thing.

This recipe is from Delia's How to Cheat at Cooking. Serves 4
This is what you might call an all-in-one recipe – just place the first 8 ingredients in a medium-sized flameproof casserole and season well.
Then sprinkle in the flour and, using both hands, toss it all around till everything is lightly coated with flour.
Next pour in the wine, give it a good stir then – ignoring the unpromising sight before you – put a close-fitting lid on the casserole. Pop it into the oven on the centre shelf and leave it there for 3 hours, and look forward to the minimum-effort, maximum-result supper that awaits.
To serve, it needs lots of fluffy mashed potato.
Pre-heat the oven to gas mark 1, 140°C
