CanCooker’s Favorites: Beef Bourguignon

Beef Bourguignon is a well-known traditional French recipe. The recipe’s roots stem from the Burgundy region in France. A delectable beef stew, this dish is typically prepared by braising the beef in a full-bodied, classic red Burgundy wine, and then stewed with a fantastic list of tasty ingredients. The French sure know how to whip up a great recipe!

The CanCooker and CanCooker Jr. are quick and simple to use and any heat source available will work. Layer your favorite vegetables on the bottom and meats on top. Add 12 ounces of any liquid—water, soft drinks, beer, juice or marinades—and your choice of seasonings before locking down the lid. Then just place the CanCooker over any heat source that will boil water. Within 15 minutes, you’ll see steam, and about 45 minutes later, your complete mouth-watering meal for your entire group will be ready to serve.
