Easy & Hearty Beef Stew

Having made beef stew with a packet of seasoning from the grocery store a few times, I decided it was time to take a stab at making it without the aid of that 99¢ packet of salt and spices. If, like me, you’re looking for something to warm your belly on a cold winter day, this is the perfect solution. It’s easy, uses spices you’ve probably already got in your house, and tastes fantastic.

Instructions
  1. In a medium mixing bowl (large enough to hold all of the cubed beef), mix together the flour, salt, cayenne pepper, onion powder, paprika, and oregano.
  2. Mix your cubed beef in to the mixing bowl and toss until there is a coating flour and spices covering each piece of beef.
  3. Dump all of the frozen veggies into your crock pot, then pour the chicken broth and red wine over them.
  4. Place the floured & seasoned cubed beef over the veggies, dumping any of the left over mixture over the top.
  5. Give everything a quick stir with a large spoon to mix it all up.
  6. Add the bay leaf and let it float on top to do its thing.
  7. Cook on low for 6 hours.
  8. Remove and throw out the bay leaf.
  9. Enjoy! Needless to say, this goes great with the remainder of that bottle of red wine.
