This recipe began down one path and ended on another. The path to the crock pot was not the intended path. But sometimes it’s fun to bypass the intended path and experience something else. Something exciting. Who needs rules and intended paths anyways? In this case, the path to a tender beef burgundy was supposed to begin and end in a 5 quart orange dutch oven. But this gal was like “Oh no, this roast isn’t going to cook right in a dutch oven” so she panicked and moved that roast over to the crock pot and the rest is tender beef history.

Silly me for thinking a dutch oven could win over a crock pot. Crock Pot > Dutch Oven. What can I say?  I’m a total crock pot kind of gal when it comes to a tender beef roast. Dutch oven: you will win when it comes to soups and chowders.

I’m not someone you would call a wine connoisseur. I don’t know much about it and I rarely drink it. I know which wines go great with chicken and seafood. But with beef, I wasn’t sure. I knew red wine was the winner but I didn’t realize there were so many different types of red wines. Luckily, my favorite grocery store in the world has these pretty sweet wine guides posted in the wine isle. They helped me realize that I needed a full bodied red wine to use for my beef recipe. Thank you, wine guide life saver.

That’s not the sweet wine guide that saved my life but that just shows you how many different types of wines there are. Wowza.

Yield: 6
Prep Time: 20 minutes

Total Time: 10 hours 20 minutes


  • 2 lb boneless beef shoulder roast
  • 1/2 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp ground chipotle pepper
  • 1 1/2 C full bodied red wine of your choice
  • 1 sweet onion, cut into chunks
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 3 tbsp whole wheat flour
  • 1 tbsp tomato paste
  • 8 oz package of sliced baby bella mushrooms
  • Parsley for garnish


  1. Whisk together the flour, salt, pepper, garlic powder and chipotle pepper powder. Coat the entire roast with the mixture and set aside.
  2. In a large dutch oven, heat 1 tbsp of olive oil and add the onions. Saute over medium heat until tender, about 5 minutes. Remove from the pot and set aside.
  3. Add 2 tbsp of olive oil to the pot. Increase the heat to medium high and add the roast. Brown all sides of the roast.

  5. Cook on low for 8-10 hours or until fork tender.
  6. Remove the beef and onions from the pot and strain the remaining liquid to remove any fatty or remaining solids. Slice or shred the beef and return the beef and the liquid to the pot and mix well.

  8. Place the beef on a serving dish and top with the mushrooms and garnish with parsley.

  1. I absolutely love my crockpot and use it all of the time and for everything! This looks wonderful, Julie. Pinned. Happy Friday. :)

  2. Any meal that includes beef, mushrooms, and red wine is my kind of meal! That meat looks so tender, and I love how easy it is to make. That wine guideline is terrific, too! :)

  3. Julie, I’ve made Beef Burgundy once and it was a long drawn out (and well worth it) Jacques Pepin recipe. I look forward to trying this crockpot version. Thanks for sharing.

    • Oh Lea Ann, I have read so many Beef Burgundy recipes that are so drawn and they intimidate me. But one day, when I plan it all out, I am going to attempt one of them! Thank you so much for stopping by! <3 I hope you have a good weekend!

  4. We are big wine drinkers around here and I love that chart! I am all about the crock pot too so this dish makes me super excited to try!

  5. Love the wine chart – we aren’t big wine drinkers either. I usually go to Trader Joe’s and buy $3 buck chuck for cooking. Love the recipe and I know John would too! Have a great weekend!

    • Oh yeah, I love the chuck roasts! I usually get those. I can’t really remember why I picked up a shoulder roast this time. It may have been on sale! Thanks for stopping by, Deb. Hope you have a great weekend as well. :)

  6. I am a big fan of cooking with wine, so this recipe is going straight to my bucket list. The beef looks super tener, yum! xx

  7. This is a perfect recipe to see on a Sunday, Julie … Sunday crockpot roast! I bet it’s beautiful with all that wine in! (very useful wine guide by the way!) Coincidentally, I’ve put a meal in my crockpot today for the first time in literally years. I can’t believe I sort of ‘forgot’ about this amazing invention. Now I’m off for a walk while my meal cooks itself! Pinning this recipe of yours!

  8. This looks delicious, Julie! :) Going to have to try this one soon! Pinned & sharing!

  16. Could you cook this on high for 4-5 hours to shorten the process?

    • Hi Jessica, cooking on high for 4-5 hours should work. I’ve never made this particular recipe by cooking 4-5 hours oh high but I have made other beef roasts and cooked for 4-5 hours on high with no issue. Hope you enjoy the recipe!

  17. I love this!!!!!! So yummy! My bpyfriends really loves it too!!! ….I do add a couple splashes of Marsala wine and soy sauce. But still great either way!!
