"This is a beef stew for the slow cooker that I came up with after quite a bit of trial and error attempting to improve upon other recipes. My husband Diego was my critic each time and finally he chose this as the winner. It has a LOT of onion :-)"

  1. Place cubed beef and flour in a resealable plastic bag. Seal and shake to evenly coat beef with flour. Heat the oil in a skillet over medium heat, and brown beef on all sides. Transfer to a slow cooker.
  2. Melt the butter in the skillet over medium heat, and cook onion until tender. Transfer to the slow cooker with the beef. Pour wine into the skillet to deglaze, then pour wine into slow cooker.
  3. Dissolve the beef bouillon cube in 1 cup hot water, and pour into slow cooker. Place potato and carrots in slow cooker, and season with rosemary, thyme, garlic powder, and pepper. Mix in remaining water and Worcestershire sauce. Add more water if needed to cover all ingredients.

My family did not like this at all. I took a few cues from other reviews and cut the rosemary and thyme in half. The red wine vinegar over powered all other spices.
