Slow Cooking Thursday~Beef Stew

Slow Cooking Thursday is hosted by Diary of a Stay at Home Mom.

1 pound lean beef stew eat, cut into cubes
1/2 pound baby carrots
1 large potato, peeled and cubed
1 medium onion, peeled and quartered
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1/2 teaspoon celery seeds
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
1 teaspoon sea salt
1 cup V8 juice*
1/4 cup red wine*
2 tablespoons brown sugar*
1 tablespoons tapioca*

  • Spray bottom of slow cooker lightly with PURE!
  • Place the beef cubes in the bottom of the slow cooker.
  • Layer vegetables over top of beef.
  • In a mortar and pestle, grind all the seasonings together to reactivate their properties.
  • Whisk together the wine, V8 juice, brown sugar and tapioca until sugar and tapioca is completely dissolved.
  • Pour this over meat and vegetables.
  • Cover and cook on low 5 hours, undisturbed.
  • Serve Immediately.

*The tapioca, red wine and brown sugar make a really nice thick gravy consistency with robust flavor when mixed with the V8.

I do the memes: Menu Plan Monday hosted by aura at I’m an Organizing Junkie, Favorite Ingredient Friday hosted by Kathryn at Overwhelmed with Joy, Freezer Food Friday hosted by MJ at mjpuzzlemom, Scrumptious Sunday hosted by Meredith at Mercedes Rocks and Slow Cooking Thursday hosted by Sandra at Diary of a Stay at Home Mom. Doing them all make great additions to help keeping me on track and finding so new recipes!


This sounds so good, I agree with Barbara though, the last one ingredient especially threw me for a loop LOL

Can’t wait to give it a try 🙂

Days of Grace
