List of ingredients for Beef bourguignon recipe (PC)

* 300 ml full bodied red wine
'''Bouquet garni'''

* 3 Bay leaves
* 1 huge stem of cutting celery, 'flowers and all' - A stalk of celery, ideally with leaves would be fine
* 1 sprig of Parsley
* 1 small sprig of Thyme
'''the stew'''

* 2 tablespoons Olive oil
* 3 large banana shallots, peeled and cut in half
* 4 cloves of garlic, peeled and crushed
* 2 Portobello mushrooms, (large field mushrooms), roughly sliced
* 2 carrots, peeled and chopped
* 250 g Stewing Steak, trimmed of excess Fat and cut into bite-sized cubes
* 10 cherry tomatoes - any type will do, they happened to be spare
* 2 tablespoons of tomato puree
* Half an oxo cube, crumbled
* Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
'''to thicken'''

* 1 tablespoon of cornflour
'''to serve'''

* 240g of dried egg noodles, cooked as directed on the packet

* If you have the time beforehand, add the meat, half bottle of red wine, the cubed steak and the bouquet garni (tied with kitchen string) to a Lock and Lock-style box, cover, shake and refrigerate for a few hours or more.
* Heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a large pan or wok. You can use the pressure cooker for this but I've found it sometimes stick during the cooking so do any 'beforehand' sautéing in my trusty wok.
* Add a good grind of black pepper, the shallots and the garlic and gently sauté 5 minutes, stirring now and then
* Add the mushrooms and carrots and fry for another 5 minutes.
* Tip the onions, garlic, mushrooms and carrots into the pressure cooker.
* Add the meat and red wine marinade, reserving the bouquet garni.
* Crumble half an oxo cube into the cooker together with the tomatoes and tomato puree and stir well.
* Sit the bouquet garni in the perforated trivet and sit this atop of the stew.
* Cook for 1 hour
* De-pressurise naturally, during this time boil the noodles as directed
* If the stew needs thickening, mix to a paste; a tablespoon of cornflour and a tablespoon of cold water, stir this into the stew and bring back to the boil, uncovered, and stir for a minute or so.
