Slow Cooker Beef Bourguignon With Noodles
My first attempt at beef bourguignon was tough… literally! I used a traditional recipe and cooked over my stove top. It took wayyyy longer than expected to get the meat to be tender enough to serve. Even then, it was still a bit more tough than I would have liked.
Enter, the slow cooker! This method of cooking is another case of old things being new again. We’re all falling in love with slow cookers and pressure cookers as if they were new creations. That is because… easy and foolproof! Your friends and family will drool over this rich, hearty, satisfying meal.
