You'll love this slow cooker version of a hearty beef stew! Beef Burgundy (also known as "beef bourguignon") is a traditional dish that warms you up from the inside-out. Not only does it smell amazing, but it tastes even more amazing! We especially love to make this dish during the cooler months of the year!

This is delicious - I made it exactly as written. I served it over mashed potatoes with carrots on the side. I used Cabernet Sauvignon for the red wine. My whole family really enjoyed this dinner.

But sounds wonderful. One thing I learned from a French chef....NEVEER us COOKING wine in any recipe ALWAYS us drinking wine. The other really messes with the taste. I had used cooking wine before but when I switched to drinking wine what a difference it made.

Excellent meal. My picky daughter was giving it a thumbs-up with the 1st bite. This recipe is a keeper!!!

Very good and easy too. I did thicken the sauce with cornstarch and water, and served over rice. Thanks for the recipe.

This has a wonderful flavor, the gravy is delicious! I don't care for noodles so I put it on mashed potatoes, it would also be good with rice.

I made this for dinner today and we loved it. I did make a few changes they were, I used a little less than the tsp of thyme, I didn't add the pearl onions, I used a beef base with water and for the wine I used merlot. Served it over the egg noodles....delicious.

I'm sure that if you substitute beef stock or fruit juice for the wine this will still make a great, fit-for-company, upscale beef stew...but it WILL NOT be Boeuf Bourguignon/Beef Burgundy. Boeuf Bourguignon/Beef Burgundy requires....well, er, BURGUNDY.

If you don't want the alcohol, just add more beef broth or water. But someone told me that you can buy non-alcoholic wines. Good luck.

you do know that the alcohol will cook out, and only the flavor will remain...and yes you can buy no alcohol wines

Boeuf Bourguignon simply means Beef Bergundy in French...not so much Fancy as Foreign. thanks for the recipe...we'll try it tonite.

I'm using venison,,,,,

I also need a substitution for red wine. I am allergic to alcohol!

grape juice, cranberry juice, ....

Any substitutions for the red wine?

try grape juice that is unsweetened, 100% grape juice. some higher-end stores have non-alcohol wine. Good Luck!

When wine is used to cook with once it reaches a certain temperature it no longer contains alcohol. Alcohol has a lower boiling point than water and evaporates only leaving the flavor.I cook all the time with dry red wine and my children do not get a buzz from it.

This was just delicious! I'll definitely be making this again and again.
