Right now I am on cloud nine. Why? Well it’s as simple as making a meal that everyone in the house loves. But especially the hubby. I made Slow-Cooke Beef in Merlot last night. When the hubby was all done eating, he had dribbled a ton of the juice onto his white tee-shirt. I told him that I wanted to take a photo of him in his tee-shirt, but I guess he is just not like the Marlboro Man who doesn’t mind his photo plastered all over the internet. So, he kindly passed on the photo opportunity. But it made me feel so happy that he devoured my dish.
- 2 pounds stew meat, cubed
- 1 cup Merlot
- ¼ cup vegetable broth
- 1 shallot, thinly sliced
- 3 tablespoons dried minced onions
- 1 Tablespoon Arrowroot
- Salt and pepper to taste
- In a slow-cooker combine all the ingredients above.
- Set to high 6 hours
- Serve over egg noodles
And in our house, everyone eats as they come home from work. What about you? I miss the traditional family gets together and dines together.
A simple beef slow-cooked in Merlot. YUM. If you don’t cook or drink alcohol just substitute the wine with a vegetable broth. I prefer using a vegetable broth other a beef or chicken broth to get the richness of all the veggies in the broth. Especially since this recipe does not call for slow cooking veggies.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.
