Slow Cooker Beef Stew

Courtesy of MyRecipes.com

  • 4 pounds bottom round, well trimmed and cut into 2-inch pieces
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour $
  • 1/3 cup olive oil (plus more if needed) $
  • large onions, diced (2 cups) $
  • 6-ounce can tomato paste
  • 1 cup dry red wine $
  • 1 pound potatoes, cut into 2-inch pieces (about 4 cups)$
  • 1/2 pound baby carrots (about 2 cups) $
  • 2 cups beef broth
  • 1 tablespoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme leaves
  • bay leaf
  • 1 cup frozen peas, thawed

Preparation

  1. Coat the beef in the flour. Heat a few tablespoons of the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Brown the meat, a few pieces at a time, adding more oil as necessary. Transfer to a 4- to 6-quart slow cooker. Add the onions to the skillet and cook over medium heat until tender, about 10 minutes. Stir in the tomato paste and coat the onions; transfer to the cooker. Pour the wine into the skillet and scrape up any browned bits; add to the cooker. Stir in the potatoes, carrots, broth, salt, thyme, and bay leaf. Cover and cook on low heat for 7 1/2 hours, or on high for 4 hours. Add the peas and heat through.

It's such a dreary, chilly, rainy day today...found stew meat at a great price Monday, so, this is in my slow cooker RIGHT NOW!

Done just as the recipe said and can't wait until dinner time! :)

I make mine very close to that recipe. no peas...dh doesn't like them. I swap in green beans instead and no wine... because we dont drink wine and never have any on hand for cooking either
