Beef bourguignon (slow cooker recipe)

From Cookipedia

]] Beef bourguignon is a well-known, traditional French beef stew recipe. It is essentially a stew prepared with beef braised in a full bodied red wine and beef stock, generally flavoured with garlic, onions, carrots, and a bouquet garni, and garnished with pearl onions and mushrooms.

This version is especially for a slow cooker and can be prepared with no pre-cooking and will cook in 8 hours (or more) so can be left cooking all day, while you are out at work.

  1. Season the flour with salt and pepper
  2. Roll the meat cubes in the flour to coat well - this will help to thicken the stew.
  3. Add the remaining ingredients to the slow cooker
  4. Stir well
  5. Cook on low for 8 hours or more. As an experiment, I left the stew as photographed for 10 hours (on low).

Serving suggestion

Often served with noodles, was also good with squash mash and garden peas. Also good with mashed potatoes.


If you have time beforehand, you can brown the whole shallots and the cubes of beef in a separate pan, before slow cooking. It adds a little colour and some extra flavour. However, when testing this recipe, everything was tipped into the slow cooker, no pre-frying and the results were perfectly acceptable.
