“This is a beef stew for the slow cooker that I came up with after quite a bit of trial and error attempting to improve upon other recipes. My husband Diego was my critic each time and finally he chose this as the winner. It has a LOT of onion :-)”

I made this recipe yesterday, starting it before work and coming home to the most wonderful aroma. (I just love slow cookers!). I used a homeade vegetable stock I had on hand instead of boullion and adjusted the water accordingly. I too did not change anything else because it looked good to me on paper and I'm happy to report that it turned just wonderful. The meat was so tender and the flavor was great. For my own preference I took a bit of liquid out just before serving and whisked in a bit of flour till it was smooth and then poured it back into the cooker for about 20 minutes to thicken is up a bit. I prefer a thicker "stew". This was so tasty and just what I needed after a long day. I highly recommend :-)

My husband and his mom loved this recipe. We followed the directions to a T. My husband generally doesn't eat red meat so I was very happy he enjoyed this. I personally like a lot of flavors so I was happy with the seasoning and probably won't change that. To the reviewer below though, it's red wine, not red wine vinegar. That probably would taste really bad in a slow cooker. Great recipe overall. Thank you

This was easy and very good! Don't let the description that says a LOT of onion scare you...it is not at all overpowering. The only thing I expected to be different was the consistency...I thought it would be Thicker so maybe next time I can remedy that by adding less liquid. Ate it over cornbread and was very tasty and filling.
