I have been making this stew for 25 years. I have tried many recipes, but this is my very favorite. Toss the ingredients together in the morning and coming home to the aroma of comfort food.

It goes so well with fresh French bread and a green salad.

  1. Brown beef cubes in skillet over medium heat. Transfer meat into crockpot.
  2. Add remaining ingredients. Cover and cook on low for 4-5 8 hours or on low for 4-5 hours.
