Beef Burgundy, Crockpot Style



This was another hit from the Cooking Light Slow Cooker cookbook. I have made this dish twice now in a very short amount of time, and I really enjoy it. The meat becomes very tender and the sauce is extremely flavorful. The whole pearl onions and mushrooms both cook down and really taste wonderful. And I’m totally sold on using my crock pot – it’s so nice to spend a little time early in the day and have dinner done and waiting for you when you’re ready to sit down and eat!
