Slow Cooker Beef Stew with Beer

Prep Time 20 minutes
Cook Time 8 hours
Total Time 8 hours 20 minutes
Servings 8 servings
Calories 685 kcal

Ingredients
1 large onion diced
4 garlic cloves minced
2 tbsp chopped rosemary divided
2 tbsp chopped thyme divided
2 bay leaves
2 tbsp all-purpose flour
1-2 tsp kosher salt to taste
½ tsp black pepper
1 tsp dried oregano
3 lbs beef chuck roast cut into 2 inch cubes
12 ounces beer
3 cups beef broth
1 can (15 oz) fire roasted diced tomatoes
1 sweet potato peeled and diced into 1 inch cubes
1 lb yukon gold potatoes diced into 1 inch cubes, peeled if desired
3 carrots peeled and cut into 1 inch pieces


Instructions

Browning the stew meat is optional, out of habit I did it when making this stew.

Add all ingredients to slow cooker EXCEPT the flour and 1 tablespoon each of the thyme and rosemary. If you prefer firmer vegetables, do not add them until the last 1-2 hours of cooking. You can add them now but they will be softer. Cook on low heat for 8 hours.

If you like your veggies to retain their shape and not get too mushy, adding them in the last few hours of cooking is best. But if you just can’t be home for that, you can add them at the beginning with everything else. They will be more soft, but it still works.

About 1 hour before stew is done cooking, remove 1/2 cup of broth. Whisk 2 Tablespoons of flour into the broth until there are no lumps. You can add more broth if it gets too thick. Once mixed, pour the flour mixture into the crock pot and stir to mix. Continue cooking until done.

Right before serving, remove the bay leaves. Add the 1 tablespoon of thyme and rosemary. Taste and add more salt and pepper if needed. Serve with No Knead bread and enjoy!

Fettuccine With Creamy Pesto

Ingredients

  • Kosher salt
  • 12 ounces dried egg fettuccine
  • 1 10-ounce bag spinach
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 3/4 cup heavy cream

  • Freshly ground pepper
  • 1/4 cup prepared pesto

  1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the pasta and cook as the label directs for al dente, adding the spinach during the last 30 seconds of cooking. Reserve 1 cup cooking water, then drain the pasta and spinach.

Add the pasta and spinach and toss until coated, about 1 minute. Stir in the cheese and season with salt and pepper. Stir in enough of the reserved cooking water to loosen the sauce.

Asian Chicken Thighs with Broccolini

Asian Chicken Thighs with Broccolini

Ingredients

Directions

Position a rack in the upper third of the oven; preheat to 450 degrees F. Put the chicken on a foil-lined rimmed baking sheet; drizzle with 1 teaspoon sesame oil, sprinkle with the five-spice powder and toss. Arrange skin-side up; season with salt and pepper. Roast until the chicken is cooked through and the skin is crisp, 25 minutes.

Meanwhile, stir the hoisin sauce, brown sugar and remaining 1 teaspoon sesame oil in a small bowl. Grate 1 garlic clove into the sauce; set aside. Chop the remaining garlic. Trim the broccolini and slice lengthwise into long florets. Trim and scrub the carrots; halve or quarter lengthwise.

Preheat the broiler. Brush half the hoisin sauce mixture on the chicken and broil until bubbling, 1 to 2 minutes. Brush with the remaining sauce and broil 1 to 2 more minutes.

Heat the vegetable oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the broccolini, carrots and chopped garlic; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring, until the garlic is soft, 1 minute. Add 1/4 cup water, cover and cook until the vegetables are crisp-tender, about 4 minutes. Uncover and stir in the sesame seeds.

Divide the chicken among plates; top with the scallion. Serve with the vegetables.
