Using a slow cooker to gently cook this beef bourguignon recipe really enhances the flavour and the tenderness of the beef. You can prepare the ingredients the night before and then pop it in the slow cooker in the morning. It’ll be ready for you for your evening meal. Just serve it with some crusty bread and you’ll be in beef bourguignon heaven.

Serve with this beef bourguinon recipe with potatoes or crusty bread. I like crusty bread as it mops up all those rich juices that have been generated from cooking the ingredients in one saucepan first. Bon appetite!

  1. My Mum used to make a fab beef boogie woogie (as she called it). May have a go at following your recipe and give it a go. Thanks for joining in with #TuesdayTreasures

  2. Hi Sally, just finished putting the bourguignon in the slow cooker. So simple and smells good already. I did substitute half the red wine with beef stock as I was worried I would find the wine a little overpowering. Fingers crossed it still turns out okay.


    • Sally Sally says:

      That’s a great idea Debbie. It was quite a rich sauce so stock would definitely work. I’d love to know how it turned out.

  3. I have always heard how difficult that beef bourguignon was to make, so I’ve never attempted it. But to find a recipe that you can make in a slow cooker? Amazing!

    I looked up bacon steaks, I’ve never heard of them before, I am going to start combing the grocer for them, this looks so delicious. I can’t even imagine what the house smells like as it cooks. YUM!

    • Sally Sally says:

      Yes, you know me Nikki. I don’t like recipes to be too fussy. If you can’t get bacon steaks, you could use lardons or even bacon it’s self. I would just check how salty they are. If they are too salty it will ruin the sauce and make it taste salty. Oh yes, the house smelled amazing.

  4. Hi Sally, I love the simplicity of your recipe. And slow cooker meals are always a hit during winter. Am pinning for future reference.


    • Sally Sally says:

      Me too Debbie. Slow cookers are such a goodsend. We make lots of stews and casseroles in ours. It’s lovely to come home to dinner already done.

    • Sally Sally says:

      I hope you enjoy Carol. This will definitely be a regular on our meal plans. Such an easy meal once the prep is done.

    • Sally Sally says:

      I love our slow cooker. All summer it sits there holding our fruit and then it comes alive in winter when we do lots of stews, casseroles and curries in it. It’s so nice to come home to dinner already done.

    • Sally Sally says:

      I hope you enjoy it Mandy. We did and we have leftovers for another day which is lovely. Just need to pop some rolls in the oven and voila!
