Slow-Cooked Beef with Red Wine

25 MIN
6 H 15 MIN
4 to 6



  1. Place the potatoes and carrots in the slow cooker. Set aside.
  2. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, brown the meat in the oil. Season with salt and pepper. Transfer to the slow cooker.
  3. In the same skillet over medium heat, brown the onions and garlic. Add oil if necessary. Dust with flour and cook for 1 more minute. Add the wine and bring to a boil while stirring. Transfer the mixture to the slow cooker and add the broth, tomatoes and thyme. Cover and cook until the meat is fork tender, about 6 hours with the cooker set to high or 8 hours with the cooker set to low. Remove the thyme. Adjust the seasoning.


You can also cook this dish in an oven preheated to 150°C (275°F). Cook for 4 to 5 hours.


  1. Comfort food!!! I agree with another reviewer that the broth could have been thicker, so I will make that change for the future. I used turkey broth that I had on hand and used up some of my san marzano tomatoes I had canned from the summer! I also added a couple shakes of Frank's Hot Sauce! I cooked the stew on high for 4 hours ...refrigerated it ...then cooked it on low for 3 hours the second!next day! Delicious!

  2. Delicious and super easy to make. It tates a lot better the day after. The first time I made it I didn't have diced tomatoes so I used tomato juice and tomato paste instead. Turned out very good but I had to add a lot more thyme.

  3. Quick to put together; very tasty! Added a good-sized spoonful of horseradish at serving time. Would have liked the gravy to be a little thicker. Will add a little more flour next time...or serve with lovely crusty bread or garlic bread.

  4. Very tastey.....used little potatoes (grelots ) and halved them....the thicker part of the carrots wasn't quite cooked after 8 time will slice them thinner.........meat was very tender....

  5. Delicious! The whole family loved it! I had to make a substitution at the last minute, as I didn't have a can of diced tomatoes. Used a bit of ketchup instead and it was great!

  6. Tender and delicious! Easy Peasy!

  7. WOW! was this ever good! really easy to make.

  8. Tasted great and somehow, 12 hours after eating, my wife went into labour with our son Matthew. Born Jan. 16th, 2012. Thanks Ricardo.

  9. very good and easy to make
