If your looking for a really delicious beef stew then here it is. What I do is use a lean boneless chuck roast for this recipe and it's oh so delicious. You want your pieces of chuck roast to be about one inch cubes for the best results. You also want to trim away the extra fat.
1. Two to Three Pounds Of Chuck Roast Cut Into One Inch Cubes.
2. One Cup Flour.
3. One Teaspoon Ground Sea Salt.
4. One Teaspoon Ground Black Pepper.
5. One Teaspoon Ground Garlic Powder.
You want to mix together the flour, salt, pepper, and garlic and then coat the chuck roast cubes with the flour mixture.
In a little vegetable oil brown your chuck roast cubes on all sides.
Once you have all your chuck roast cubes browned pour them and the drippings out into a crock pot or slow cooker and then add the below ingredients to the slow cooker or crock pot.
1. One Cup Fine Chopped Sweet Onion.
2. Three Cups Peeled Potatoes Cut In Very Small Cubes.
3. One Cup Red Wine.
4. Three Cups Beef Broth.
Put everything in the crock pot and turn it on high for eight hours. Keep the lid on the crock pot or slow cooker and cook until the meat and vegetables are tender. You can if you wish add a cup of peeled and very thin sliced carrots to your stew. I like to serve my stew over homemade mashed potatoes or hot butteed white rice. Either makes a wonderful meal. Give it a try and see what you think.
If you want to you can make this stew with venison instead of beef.
