FAQs AND QUESTIONS

How To Make Slow Cooker Beef Stew, Step By Step

 

  • Step 1: Trim any large pieces of fat and cut the beef chuck roast into two inch pieces. Heat a large skillet over medium high heat. Once the skillet is hot, add a couple tablespoons of oil. Once the oil is shimmering, add the chunks of beef. Season with the salt and pepper and sear until browned, about three minutes per side.

  • You’ll need to do this in 2–3 steps so as to not overcrowd the pieces of beef. Overcrowding the beef will create steam and prohibit a good sear. Once one batch of beef is browned, transfer it to the crockpot, and continue with the next batch of beef chunks.

 

  • Step 2: Don’t stop there. Fry the mushrooms in the same pan. Mushrooms are a sponge. Frying them will crisp them up and draw out some of the moisture. The end result will be a more pleasing textured mushroom once it’s added to the liquid of the soup. Refrigerate them after frying, we’ll add them at the end of the cooking time.

  • Step 3: You’ve already got the fry pan out and hot, go ahead and sauté the carrots and onions for about five minutes. Doing so will enhance the sweetness and texture in both vegetables. Add the smashed garlic and cook until fragrant. About one minute. Add red wine and cook about three minutes, or until liquid is almost evaporated.

 

  • Step 4: Add the coriander seeds and parsley pouch, thyme, bay leaves, carrots, onions and potatoes to the beef in the crockpot.

  • To finish: Cook on low for seven hours. Then stir in the red wine vinegar, grainy Dijon mustard and mushrooms. Fish out about a cup of broth from the crockpot and place it in a small bowl. Add the flour and whisk into a thick roux. Stir the roux into the crockpot and cook on low for another thirty minutes to thicken the stew. Fish out the bay leaves and the coriander/parsley pouch before serving.
