Equipment

Ingredients

  • 2 pounds beef chuck roast cut into chunks
  • 1/3 cup flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon Italian Seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons cooking oil
  • 5 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 medium onion chopped
  • 3 medium carrots sliced
  • 1 lb baby potatoes
  • 4 tablespoons red wine
  • 4 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 teaspoons Italian Seasoning or oregano
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 4 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 4 cups beef broth
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoons green peas

Instructions

  • Place the beef cubes in a large mixing bowl along with flour, onion powder, Italian seasoning, salt and pepper. Mix until well coated.
  • Place a large skillet on medium-high heat. Once hot, add cooking oil followed by enough beef to fill the pan 3/4 full in one layer.
  • Sear in skillet until lightly browned on all sides, about 5 minutes total. Then transfer the beef to a large plate. Repeat for any remaining beef.
  • Add garlic, onions, carrots, baby potatoes and browned beef cubes into the slow cooker.
  • Add red wine, Worcestershire sauce, Italian seasoning, bay leaf, tomato paste and beef broth to the slow cooker. Mix well.
  • Cook on low for 8-9 hours or high for 4-5 hours until potatoes are tender and meat is tender.
  • About 30 minutes prior to serving, mix together cornstarch with 2 tablespoons cold water in a small bowl until smooth. Pour the mixture into the slow cooker, cover and cook on high for 20-30 minutes until the broth has thickened.
  • A few minutes before serving, add peas to the slow cooker.
  • Serve with optional chopped parsley on top for garnish. Enjoy!
