Best beef stew I've ever made! I apologize for the vague instructions, the ingredient amounts are approximate as well as I did this over the weekend but did not note amounts. It turned out so good I wanted to save what I did so I could make again! Chicken broth can be used instead of beef broth if desired.

  • Whisk red wine, beef broth, tomato paste, and rosemary together in a bowl until smooth; pour over beef and vegetables.

  • Cook on Low until beef and vegetables are tender, 4 to 6 hours.

Loved it (and so did my housemates)! I added a little Worcester sauce and doubled the liquids only because I like my stews a little 'saucier'. Will be making this again for sure! Read More

OMG !! My wife and I awarded this the best stew ever! OK we're biased towards tomatoes, garlic, and WINE! I prefer to sauté the veggies Iin a little added wine?) before placing into the the crock pot for added flavor. As the author mentioned, amounts are vague, but who cares. Load it with your favorites., and enjoy. I seem to remember slow cooking for close to 8 hours. Al I can say is yummy and filling. Can't wait to make it again.. Read More

This is a good stew. I added a few extra spices, let it cook on low for 8 hours. We enjoyed the hardiness of the meal. Great on a cold winter day! Read More

Supremely undercooked using the recipe as directed. Probably tasty otherwise. Will try again but adjust cooking temp/times. Read More

Made this recipe as is but it still needs something sauce seems bland. The vegetables and beef cook well on low 4-6 hours on low depending on hot your slow cooker runs. Would make again but would also try adding the onion soup and some more seasonings. Read More
