How do you make Beef Burgundy in a slow cooker?
- Place the beef in the bottom of the crock pot.
- In a medium size bowl whisk together the mushroom soup, red wine, broth and onion soup mix. I like to add in bay leaves as well.
- Pour over the beef.
- Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours until the beef is tender then reduce heat. I bring to a simmer before serving.

We love recipes that you can change ingredients to what you have at home. Here are some of our variations that we have tried and loved.
- Add Worcestershire Sauce – Some people like to add a little Worcestershire sauce to the beef broth.
- Bacon makes everything taste better – It is also really tasty to add bacon to a large skillet and add the brown bits to the slow cooker.
- Serve over Pasta – We use egg noodles but any type of pasta will do. We even liked the Frozen Reames Noodles.
- Potatoes or Rice – You could even serve this over rice or mashed potatoes.
- Add Vegetables – You can add in some pearl onions, carrots or broccoli to make it a complete meal.
- Stir in Mushrooms – My sister loves to add mushrooms to this recipe.
- Brown the Meat – Some recipes call to brown the beef, I just place in the crock pot uncooked. If you do brown on both sides before putting in the crock pot, place on a paper towel to drain the grease. It takes an extra 15 minutes to prepare the meat.
- Make it Keto – If you are doing low carb or Keto, just eat the beef and omit the noodles or rice. It makes a really good keto meal.

How do you thicken Crock Pot Beef Burgundy?
If you prefer that you gravy be a little thicker, you can mix 2 tablespoon of corn starch with 2 tablespoons of water and then pour into the crock pot. Stir together with the other ingedients.
Let ingredients simmer together for for about 30 minutes. Add a little more of the mixture and then repeat the process.
How to store Beef Burgundy?
Beef Burgundy stored in the freezer. Be sure to use a freezer safe container to freeze. Once you are ready to serve, thaw overnight in the refrigerator and reheat. We like to reheat on the stove so that heats thoroughly.
If you prefer you can store leftovers in the refrigerator. If we are eating them in the next 3-4 days, I will simply put the leftovers in individual containers. We think this beef burgundy is even better the next day.
My husband is always excited when we have this leftover. It makes for a hearty lunch the next day.
Is Beef Stew and Beef Burgundy the same?
They are a little different. Beef Burgundy is usually cooked with red wine and pearl onions. Beef stew is usually cooked with white onions but no red wine.
The ingredients are very similar and are usually served the same way.
My family just loves when I make beef and noodles. So rather I add in the red wine or not, they are just happy to be eating some a hearty meal.
