The new year is in full swing with school starting this week and plans for the upcoming year here on Chocolate Slopes. The hiatus I took over the holidays was so needed. Since blogging can be a 24/7 job if you allow it, it’s necessary to take a break to recharge, which I hope happened!
And since we moved just a little over a month ago we’re all still getting used to a new routine. Especially bedtime since my boys (ages 6 and 3) are sharing a room for the first time. It sure is a transition period! And to keep things simple, I’m continuing to give my slow cooker a good workout. This latest recipe could of course be cooked in a large pot, but I much prefer adding ingredients to the slow cooker and forgetting about it.
This recipe was a bit of an experiment since I have never, yes never cooked with wine. It’s a little hard to believe since I have cooked with beer in numerous recipes before but never with wine. I researched a bit of why you would want to cook with wine and I found out that wine helps tenderize meat along with adding flavor and moisture to the dish.
When it comes to beef in my house, you’ll always see pounds of lean or extra lean ground beef frozen in one pound portions. This is because I stock up at my local Sam’s Club, since it’s so much cheaper. I also stock up on steak anytime I see it on sale. For this recipe you can use a few different cuts of beef such as stew beef or boneless beef chuck.
