This classic French recipe can take hours to prepare. We did it in less than 30 minutes.
Despite its French name, this hearty stew is built on the familiar flavors of pork, chicken, and beans. Traditional cassoulet takes days of cooking, but we streamlined the recipe for the slow-cooker.
We wanted to bring this dish to its earthy, robust, warm potential: satisfyingly large chunks of tender meat draped with a velvety sauce brimming with the flavor of good Burgundy wine and studded with caramelized mushrooms and pearl onions.
