Beef Burgundy with Egg Noodles
This classic French stew just got so, so easy. Traditionally, the dish requires browning meat in batches, deglazing, sautéing vegetables, then uniting the ingredients in the pot for a stovetop simmer. Our version cuts out nearly every one of those steps and lets the slow cooker do the work. The result? Meltingly tender beef and an incredibly rich base. A note on herbs here: dried are better in the slow cooker because they release their flavor slowly during cooking. Use fresh herbs at the end. The stew would be delicious on its own, but a bed of hot cooked egg noodles allows you to sop up the sauce.
