This Slow Cooker Beef Burgundy makes for an easy weeknight dinner.
Beef burgundy was in our regular dinner rotation when I was growing up. My Mom also made tacos, split pea soup, spaghetti, orange pork chops and pepper pot beef. Beef burgundy was one of my favorites because I loved the sauce, the tender beef and the egg noodles it was served over. This is an easy slow cooker version. I love it because I often have no time to make dinner when it’s dinnertime!
This recipe also works well with lamb stew meat. My family likes it both ways. I’m happy to add another good slow cooker recipe to the collection… since good slow cooker recipes are difficult to find! Enjoy…
