Place the diced steak in a large bowl with the red wine and mixed herbs, leave for 3 hours to marinate.
Heat the 1 tablespoon of the oil in a large nonstick frying pan and saute the speck, onion, garlic, and carrot. Add to your slow cooker.
Drain the meat from the marinade and reserve the liquid for later use.
Add the salt, pepper, and flour to a bowl and mix well. Dredge the meat in the flour.
Add the remaining oil to the frying pan and brown the beef. Add the reserved marinade mixture and brandy to the meat and deglaze the pan.
Bring to a simmer and thicken slightly then remove from the heat, add to your slow cooker.
Add the beef stock and bouquet garni. Set your slow cooker to low and cook for 6-7 hours.
Melt the butter in a frying pan, add the pickling onions, fresh thyme and button mushrooms.
Fry the mixture for 2-3 minutes then add the brown sugar. Stir until the sugar dissolves.
Add the mushroom mixture to the casserole and continue cooking for another 30 minutes.
Discard the Bouquet garni prior to serving.
If you require a thicker Beef Bourguignon add the cornflour to the water and stir through the casserole whilst its in the last ten minutes of cooking.
