vegetable beef stew

Although today is supposed to be nice and sunny, tomorrow is supposed to snow here in Kentucky....  What better way to warm up than with this delicious stew made in the crock-pot so it can be ready for you when you get home?  Absolutely nothing!

Vegetable Beef Stew

Makes 8 servings

2 tablespoons olive oil
2 pounds stew beef, cubed
1 cup red wine
2 potatoes, diced
2 cups beef glace (can be found with the stocks and broths)
1-14 oz can diced tomatoes
1-6 oz can tomato paste
1 cup corn
1 cup beans, cut into bite-size lengths
1 cup carrots, diced
1 cup celery, diced
1 large onion, diced
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 teaspoon dried thyme
1 tablespoon dried parsley
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  1. Heat oil in a large skillet until hot; add beef and sear on one side.  This might have to be done in more than 1 batch.
  2. Place the seared beef in the crock-pot and add wine to de-glaze the pan.  Once all the browned and stuck bits are loose, place in the crock-pot.
  3. Add the remaining ingredients to the crock-pot.
  4. Cook on low for 6-8 hours.
  5. Enjoy!
The weather here has been crazy the last few weeks.  Plus, it's been so dreary that the last few days of sunshine have been so fantastic for me especially.  I love cold weather, but the dreariness is for the birds!
