Beef bourguignon pie is an absolute knock out. Melt in the mouth beef, mushrooms, pancetta or bacon and red wine creates a delicious sauce that the sour cream pastry encases, delivering a pie to be prized and proud to serve. This recipe is from our beef bourguignon, make double the recipe and freeze for days when a hot, delicious pie is just what the doctor ordered.
If making pastry scares you…..this is the pastry for you!
Rich, tender, melt-in the-mouth, flaky and a complete doddle to make and work with. Jen is our resident pastry maker, whipping up time consuming puff pastry with complete ease and delivery. Whereby I, am never that confident making pastry and discovered this sour cream pastry that was heaven sent.
This pastry could not be easier to make. Throw everything in the food processor and blitz till you have a ball of pastry, wrap in cling film, refrigerate, then roll away. Success every time! Two minutes go to whoa!
It pays to prepare ahead
Whenever we make our beef bourguignon we always make enough to freeze ahead for days that you simply thaw the beef, make some very quick sour cream pastry, fill and bake!
