Winter Recipes to Warm Up Your Dinner Table

Winter Recipes to Warm up Your Dinner Table. Crock Pot Beef Stew!

Tonights masterpiece is another slow roasted favorite- beef stew! I especially like this recipe because it has peas in it which is a little different than the traditional beef stew. It tasted absolutely amazing. A crowd pleaser for sure!

What you will need:

  • 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) 
  • 2 large onions, diced (2 cups) 
  • 1 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
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 cup frozen peas, thawed

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.
