Slow Cooker Beef Burgundy

Tender cubes of beef are treated to a burgundy wine sauce and savory vegetables in Sherri Mott's robust entree. "I made this often when I worked full-time," she writes from New Carlisle, Indiana. "It's good over noodles or mashed potatoes."

    Delicious. I served it over mashed potatoes. Instead of the concentrate broth l used the boxed regular strength and used it instead of water in the thickening. I will make this again. Janet VFE

    I didn't have some of the ingredients, thus I had to improvise by using beef bullion for the broth with worstorshire sauce and tomato sauce instead of tomato paste. The results were tremendous! This was absolutely delicious!

    Great beef burgundy recipe, and easy to put together. I have made this in both my crockpot and a dutch oven on the stovetop when I had less time for cooking and it worked well. I have used both chuck roast and sirloin steak, and both tasted good in the burgundy sauce. Great recipe to serve to a table full of people with a spinach salad, and a green vegetable. Love it!

    This is a very good recipe. I did however make some changes using ingredients I had on hand. I used turkey bacon instead which I microwaved and then crumbled. I used frozen turkey meatballs instead of the beef. I used a beef gravy mix instead of the flour and water and prepared the gravy using the beef broth and wine. Even with the changes this recipe was tasty and well received.

    Of course I had to mess with this recipe. I was channeling my late mother big-time. I sliced a large onion, then added four small shallots, peeled and sliced, that needed to be used up anyway. Tripled the amount of carrot. Used a heavy hand with the seasonings and tomato paste, because it's my experience that long, slow cooking tends to make the seasonings wane in strength. Added a couple of dashes of Worcestershire sauce along with the mushrooms, wine and thickener at the end. It was yummy! I used a California cabernet for the wine. Served it over mashed potatoes, although my daughter insisted upon having hers over cooked pasta, so I had to cook up some linguine at the last minute. This is a good basic recipe but do not be afraid to make changes.

    Delicious! My family loved it. I added peas which we liked but is definitely not necessary.
