What’s better than celebrating one national holiday (July 4th)?
Bastille day is coming up and while I’m not French in any way, I do love a holiday. I recently partnered with my friends at Sprouts to create my twist on this French classic as a way to celebrate.
I opted for a crock pot beef bourguignon version for a number of reasons. First of all, crock pot recipes are great in the summer time when it’s hot and you don’t want to turn the oven on. I think people often only think of their crock pot in the winter, but you should definitely dust it off and fire it up in the summer too.
Secondly, life has been CRAZY lately y’all! I’ve been in Minnesota, Seattle and Las Vegas, and have been squeezing in a ton of work in between. I need easy, filling meals that will keep me going through all of my adventures.
Crock pot meals are perfect for that.
This crock pot beef bourguignon takes only a few minutes to prep and then you can easily set it and forget it until dinner time. Sprouts brand beef and bacon are the basis for a hearty and majorly satisfying stew. Check out the quick video below to see just how easy it is!
Bonus: The Hubs was thrilled when he came home from work to a delicious smelling house and a bowl full of meat. It was a far cry from the quinoa bowls, veggie tacos, and big summer salads I’ve been serving up lately.
