I made the first slow cooked stew of the Autumn season.
Put the chopped veggies in the slow cooker (I used carrots, potato's, peas, french beans and tomato's) put in a base sauce (tomato and garlic or tinned chopped tomato's with some stock) add flavor with Tabasco or Worcester Sauce and herbs.
Flour the beef braising steak and brown before adding to the crock pot.
I added a quarter bottle of red wine (left over from Sunday lunch!)
It cooked all day while we were working, when we came home the kitchen smelt so lovely and dinner was almost ready..... I added some dumplings and put the crock pot in the oven to finish.
