The snow just keeps on falling… which in my world means the slow cooker must keep on cooking! There’s just something cozy about the smells and warmth a slow cooker gives off all day that I just love.
Today I was craving some good hearty beef. I found some beef stew meat in the freezer and this meal was born. Similar to a beef stew, but with more meat and mushrooms and less ‘gravy’… perfect for a cold snowy day!
Slow Cooker Beef & Mushrooms Recipe
1 1/2 lbs beef stew meat
1 medium onion, chopped
1 lb whole button mushrooms
1/2 cup beef or chicken stock
1 tablespoon worcestershire sauce
salt & pepper, to taste
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon chipotle chili powder
splash of red wine (optional)
Throw everything into the slow cooker, stir to combine, and cook on low for 8-10 hours. Serve with noodles, rice or mashed potatoes… whatever you’d like!
