Ingredients

    approximately 3.4 lbs of marbled bottom round
    diced raw onion
    extra virgin olive oil
    tomato sauce or crushed tomatoes

    raisins

Tips

Enjoy, you'll love this stew. JC


Directions

Assemble your ingredients. Dice 2 medium onions and begin sauteing in olive oil just shy of lightest brown. Divide the beef into 1 inch thick pieces and grill both sides for a few minutes to have strong grill marks. This is the same as browning but better at bringing up flavor. Cut the meat into 1" chunks, going against the grain when able. Put onions and cubed grill seared beef into cooker.

Add diced celery, 1/2 the celantro, raisins, and 3 cups of wine. Cover and cook for three hours at less than a boil. Test the beef for tenderness and continue if not tender. Time the addition of the carrots and potatoes so that they are well cooked but not mushy. Towards the last ten minutes add the rest of the celantro, pepper and tomato sauce.

The raisins will plump up, the beef will be tender and retain some seared flavor from the grill, the celantro will blend into the stew and be similar to a savory herb garnier. The wine will form a wonderful deep broth, a rich satisfying dinner to serve with a good slice of crusty bread. Let individuals salt to taste, we try to keep it to a minimum.

Serving Size: 7-8

    I do a lot of cooking and this is the BEST beef stew that I have ever eaten! Searing the beef on a grill before adding it to a slow cooker is genius! The wine gives it a flavor that is reminiscent of Beef Bourguignon, but with a very savory flavor that surprises you with raisins and cilantro leaves. - 11/8/13

  • Dinner last night was DELICIOUS, thank you. We are having it for lunch today putting over some spatzle. The aroma has filled the house a friend visited asking what smelled so great. He had some and raved also. Congratulations, I hope the judges try this. - 11/9/13
