Crock Pot Slow Cooker Beef and Red Wine Stew
This Beef and Red Wine Stew recipe is fairly easy to make and if you like big serves then it will feed 2 people. It's not as easy finding recipes for two for the slow cooker so finding this one was like gold. You can vary it by adding mushrooms or bell peppers. You can also swap the onions with leeks for a slightly different texture and taste.
Crock Pot Slow Cooker Beef with Red Wine Stew1 lb (1/2 kg) steak cut into bite size pieces flour to coat steak 2 tabs olive oil 1/2 cup chopped carrots 1 medium onion chopped 1 large clove garlic crushed 1 tab each chopped chives and parsley 1 small bay leaf 1 cup red wine of your choice 1 cup beef stock cube 1 tab instant gravy mix to thicken if required but recommended
Coat meat in flour and brown meat in oil. Remove and put aside. Add to the pan the onions, carrots and herbs and toss until softened a little. Remove the vegetables and put into the base of the slow cooker. Place the meat on top of the vegetables.
Add the wine and stock to the pan and mix well together as this then combines the juices from the pan as well. Pour into the crock pot slow cooker over the meat and vegetables. Put the lid on and cook on low for 6 hours. Thicken with the instant gravy mix combined with a little water if you think the stew is too thin.
Serves 2 large servings or 3 medium ones. I serve it with sweet potato mash but you can serve with rice or just some of your favorite crusty bread. Get out your crock pot slow cooker and start cooking.
