Slow Cooker Beef Stew

This is an adaptation of a family recipe that I grew up with. 

It is made with tomatoes, potatoes, garlic along with other seasoning’s and vegetables.The herb mix is what gives this slow cooker recipe that “Italian Taste” and will impress family and friends.

1 ½ kg (3 lb)  lean dices (25mm 1 inch) cubes of Sirloin Beef Bolar or Topside roast (trim any visible fat)
400g (16oz) Italian (Roma) tomatoes skined and diced
1                              cup beef stock (broth) 1/2 and 1/2 beef stock and red wine
1 medium       onion, chopped
1 cup            diced celery
2                  large carrots, peeled and chopped into chunky pieces
2                  medium sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into bite-size chunks
2-3 cloves      garlic, peeled and crushed
2                  bay leafs
1 tsp            dry oregano
½ tsp           dry rosemary
1 tsp            dry thyme
1/2 tsp          ground black pepper
salt to taste if desired after cooking
Add beef cubes and other ingredients except the tomatoes and herbs into your slow cooker bowl. Top with canned tomato and herbs, stir and cook on low 8-10 hours or until tender. Remove bay leaf before serving.
I serve either in a bowl with fresh breads (Gluten free if required) or plated with seasonal fresh greens.

    Put this in the slow cooker late yesterday afternoon, had to go out for a few hours and when I got home at 8.30 I was greeted with that amazing aroma :) quickly steamed some greens and enjoyed a late dinner, was even better this morning…. This will become a favorite! Thank you :)

    Curious if you add any water to the crockpot or beef broth?? Or if not, where does the liquid come from so that it doesn’t cook down? Thanks!!

  5. Erin says:

    Curious too on the liquids… sounds delish!

    Where did the gravy come from? Thanks!

    Sounds delish – what if you don’t have a crockpot? What temp/cooking time for an oven?

    Hi there Jimmy i was wandering whether you would get the same flavours with fresh herbs instead as i have allof these growing, oh do you necessarily need to brown the meat or can you just throw it in the crockpot,on my menu this week, yum!
