Beef stew is a Sunday night staple in households throughout America. There's something about smelling that hearty aroma that brings families together. In winter, it's the perfect way to warm yourself from the inside out, and this seasonal favorite combines the classic flavors of beef and red wine with tender vegetables all in one.
Your slow cooker takes almost all the work out of this classic dish. All you need to do is brown the beef and sauté the onions; everything else cooks low and slow over the course of seven hours. Even the gravy thickens in the slow cooker. So, what are you waiting for? Let's get cooking!
Note: All slow cookers are a little bit different in temperature and calibration. This recipe was tested in Cooktop Cove's Test Kitchen using this slow cooker, which is available for purchase here.
