For the winter season there is nothing more comforting than a nice warm beef stew. Which is also one of my favorite winter dishes.
Beef chunks for stew (I used 2 Lbs)
2 or 3 carrots
extra virgin olive oil
salt and pepper
Start by rolling the meat in some flour and just lightly brown it in a skillet. In your crock pot pour some extra virgin olive oil, the chopped carrots, potatoes, onions, and parsley. Mix everything well, and then pour the meat on top of the veggies. To finish pour 2 cups of water, 1 cup of red wine and the tomato paste. Give it a good stir and cook it on low for about 7-8 hours. I set mine to cook overnight and this morning when I woke up my wonderful stew was ready! Yummy! Enjoy! Buon appetito!
