Thanks for joining me today along with 10 other bloggers as we share some of our favourite slow cooker recipes! Fall is my favourite season and I love it when the air starts to get cooler and we go from barbecues and salads to more hearty indoor comfort meals. There is nothing more hearty than a delicious beef bourguinon made slow and easy in your slow cooker. This tasty slow cooker beef bourginon recipe has a little work on the front end but once that’s done you can enjoy the aroma of it cooking away while you enjoy your day!
Slow Cooker Beef Bourguignon Recipe:
- 5 slices of bacon chopped
- 3 lbs stewing beef
- 1 cup good red wine
- 2 cups beef broth
- 1/4 cup soy sauce
- 1/4 cup tomato paste
- 1/4 cup flour
- 1 lb baby potatoes
- 5 medium carrots chopped
- 4 cloves of garlic minced
- 10 0z mushrooms sliced
- 8 oz pearl onions
- 2 tbsp fresh thyme minced
- fresh parsley finely chopped for garnish
- salt and pepper to taste
- Add chopped bacon to a pan over medium heat and brown for 3-4 minutes. Remove bacon and place in slow cooker.
- Salt and pepper stewing beef and place in the pan to sear in the bacon fat in small batches. Add beef to slow cooker.
- Pour the cup of red wine into the pan and deglaze all the bits from the bottom.
- Whisk in beef broth, soy sauce and tomato paste. Once those ingredients are incorporated, whisk in the flour and let simmer for a couple of minutes. Add to slow cooker.
- Add the potatoes, chopped carrots, pearl onions, sliced mushrooms, minced garlic and thyme.
- Stir all the ingredients together and cook on low for 6-8 hours or until beef is tender.
- Once it’s done, finely chop some fresh flat leaf parsley on top and you’re ready to serve.
This delicious meal can be served with a crusty loaf of bread and creamy mashed potatoes. It’s definitely worth the added time it takes to sear the meat once you taste that rich dark gravy. It makes a great week night meal or a special Sunday supper with the family. I hope you try it, I promise you won’t be disappointed!
