I made this for dinner and served it over mashed potatoes. It was very flavorful and the meat was very tender. I did not have red wine so added cooking sherry instead and it turned out fine. This recipe is a keeper.
Whenever I see a recipe from Sue Gronholz I Whenever I see a recipe from Sue Gronholz I know it will be great and this one was no exception! I served over mashed potatoes with steamed baby peas, fresh carrots and hot rolls - YUM!
This is very good! Next time I might crank up the slow cooker to High after adding the cornstarch slurry and let it cook for a little longer, just to thicken the sauce a bit more, but otherwise I would not change a thing. Like a previous reviewer I subbed a teaspoon of crushed dried rosemary for the fresh rosemary sprig. For the wine I bought a mini Bota box (500 ml) of Red-Volution, and there was just enough left over for me to have a glass of it (I fully subscribe to the idea of putting wine into the food AND into the cook). I served the beef over mashed potatoes. My daughter bought me a smaller (4-qt.) slow cooker for my birthday a month ago and this recipe was its maiden voyage.
Wonderful!! Husband and toddler love it! Did not have the dry red wine, so I just added more beef broth. As a personal preference I only used half an onion and 3 minced cloves of garlic (did not have whole ones on hand).
This was delicious. My family loved it! Who says you can't have a great dinner in the middle of the week!
Made a big pot of this using stew meat and some chip steaks I had on hand. Didn't have any red wine so used the red cooking wine and cut way back on the salt. This was very tasty. Had quite a bit left over as there are only two of us so will freeze what's left. Plan on adding (pre-cooked) stew vegetables for the next batch (more onion, carrots and potatoes.) Will probably even try this method with pot roast. Also didn't have a rosemary sprig so used just under a teaspoon of crushed rosemary. Serve this with some jalapeno cornbread...what a feast!
Wow! What a flavorful recipe! It was a bit time consuming for a weeknight dinner, but well worth the time spent!
