Prep 15 mins Cook 7 mins Slow Cook on HIGH for 5 hours or LOW for 61/2 hours


  • 2 pounds beef chuck for stew, cut into 1 1/2- to 2-inch chunks
  • 5 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 1 can (14.5 oz) low-sodium beef broth
  • 4 large carrots, peeled and cut on the diagonal into 11/2-inch pieces
  • 1 pkg (10 oz) brown mushrooms, cleaned (halved or quartered if large)
  • 2 cloves garlic, sliced
  • 1 cup red wine
  • 1 bag (14.4 oz) frozen pearl onions, thawed
  • Mashed potatoes or hot buttered noodles (optional)

Make It

1. Combine beef in a large resealable plastic bag with 2 tbsp of the flour, 1/4 tsp of the salt and the pepper. Shake to coat. Melt butter and oil in a large stainless steel skillet over medium-high heat. Add beef and brown for 5 minutes, stirring to sear all sides (cook in 2 batches, if needed). Spoon into slow cooker. Reduce heat under pan to medium and add 1 cup of the broth. Cook for 2 minutes, stirring up any brown bits on bottom of pan. Pour into slow cooker along with carrots, mushrooms, garlic, red wine and remaining beef broth. Scatter onions over top of vegetables.

2. Cover and slow cook on HIGH for 5 hours or LOW for 61/2 hours. With a slotted spoon, remove beef and vegetables to a large serving bowl.

3. Whisk together remaining 3 tbsp flour with 3 tbsp water in a small bowl. Strain hot liquid from slow cooker into a medium saucepan. Whisk in flour mixture and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Boil 3 minutes, until thickened, then stir into stew with remaining 1/4 tsp salt. Serve stew over mashed potatoes or noodles, if desired.
