No Fuss, No Muss Crockpot Cooking: Crockpot Beef Bourguignon


If you’ve ever made Beef Bourguignon, you will know why it’s the recipe that got Julia Child’s published. That’s why we were thrilled when Sophfronia Scott (Business by the Book) shared her favorite crockpot version of this beloved classic!

“Here’s my absolute fave! It was printed on the side of the box of my slow cooker when I bought it. Loved it so much I xeroxed it before recycling the cardboard! I then passed the recipe on to a dear friend when I bought her a slow cooker this past Christmas! Here’s the beef!” ~ Sophfronia Scott
