About thirteen years ago I made a beef burgundy from a recipe that a coworker had given to me. My neighbor had come over and tried it and to this day, claims it’s her favorite dinner I’ve ever made. This time, I wanted to make a crock pot version, so I adjusted the recipe to work with my slow cooker.
Beef Burgundy has its variations from family to family, but the basics are the same. Beef.. Burgundy wine.. Bacon. Most people serve it over egg noodles, but it’s also delicious with any kind of potato or rice. Some Beef Burgundy recipes have different vegetables, but most include carrots and onions, so feel free to play around with it. After all, it’s your dinner!
Crock Pot Beef Burgundy
I actually used round steak for this recipe. Round steak is a cheaper cut of meat and is only called steak because of how it’s cut. If you cook it on the grill like a steak, you’ll be less than enthused. But it is a great cut for the slow cooker, probably most commonly cooked as Swiss Steak.

I used my Crock-Pot iStir Automatic Stirring Slow Cooker – you might want to check it out. It’s great for recipes like this that benefit from stirring. This slow cooker does the stirring for you automatically as it turns on at intervals throughout the cooking process!
Dredge beef and flour.
In a skillet over medium-high heat, brown meat in batches in olive oil.
Remove beef to crockpot and add chopped bacon over the top. Do not clean out skillet.
In same skillet you cooked the beef in, sauté onion and garlic until soft.
Add wine and beef broth and deglaze the pan. Add salt and pepper and bring to a gentle boil.
Add carrots over bacon.
Pour contents of skillet over everything. Stir and cook on low for 6 to 8 hours or on high for 4 to 6 hours. Serve over egg noodles.
