This recipe is from the America's Test Kitchen slow cooker episode. I'm not a fan of slow cookers, but this Beef Burgundy is soooo delicious and full of rich flavors you would never guess that it was made in a slow cooker, definitely a keeper!
Some days you just need a slow cooker meal...! Love soups and was looking for something a little different. If you have an open jar or packet of thai curry paste in your fridge, and you like the flavour of it, this is another way to enjoy it. Most of the items are pantry staples, which is how this came to be, and it's fairly low calorie/low fat. I made it to fit a small crock pot (2.5 Q I think)....yields enough for 2 good sized portions. If you use a larger crock pot you would probably have to double the recipe. Some flat bread on the side makes it a meal.
Queso Fundido is a ubiquitous Tex-Mex staple that combines spicy meat with creamy cheese dip and chiles. Chorizo is typically the meat of choice, but I’ve gone with beef short ribs here, which are more meaty than spicy and lend a decidedly barbecue tone to the proceedings. And since they cook very nicely in a slow cooker anyway, this dip’s a natural. *No aspect of this dish can be considered heart-healthy. It may even be illegal in the state of California.
