Crock Pot Drunken Boeuf Bourguignon (Beef Burgundy

Kimmi Knippel (Sweet_Memories)


The reason I call this one "Drunken" is because I add double the amount of wine I put into it. Yummy!!!!

Boeuf Bourguignon, a delectable beef stew, celebrates its roots through homage to its prized Charolais cattle. Reputed for their distinct taste, low fat content, & gentle temperament, the creamy white Charolais bulls, found around the Charolles region of southern Burdundy, are used extensively in the making of bœuf bourguignon. The cattle are fed only hay, fodder & cereal, which produce healthy cows. The meat is very tender & used for stewing & grilling.
