Slow Cooker Beef Burgundy Tips

Is beef burgundy the same as beef bourguignon?

Yes, “bourguignon” is French for “burgundy” or “in the style of the Burgundy region.” The full French name is boeuf bourguignon. Try out our top French recipes.

What cut of beef is best for beef burgundy?

Use stew meat, chuck or any cut of beef that you’d typically braise. Tough, inexpensive cuts of beef make the very best homemade beef stews.

What is the best wine to use in slow cooker beef burgundy?

A delicate, light-bodied red wine (such as Pinot Noir, the grape used to create French Burgundy wine), is the ideal pick. Avoid wine packaged exclusively for cooking, as it’s high in added salt and can affect the flavor of the dish. If you’re trying to cut sodium, you’ll want to know about these surprisingly salty foods.
