Slow Cooker Irish Beef Stew
with carrots and potatoes

Active: 20 min Total: 6 hr 20 min
It's St. Paddy's Day so we brought you a classic Irish Stew, cooked in your slow cooker. Whether you add the wine or not, you'll still be left with a lot of heartiness to warm you through this cold winter.
Smarts: Because beef does need a long time to really get tender, we think the best results can be achieved in a slow cooker, so we skipped the non-slow cooker directions on this one.

Make

  1. Optional step: Toss meat with arrowroot powder. Heat a skillet over medium-high heat. Add oil and then sear meat until browned on the outside.
  2. While meat is browning, mix together tomato paste, Tamari, beef stock (use more if you like it more soupy than stewy) and red wine (if using) in slow cooker.
  3. Transfer meat (browned or not) to slow cooker. Add garlic, onions, carrots, potatoes, bay leaves, and black pepper.
  4. Cook on low for 6 to 7 hours or high for 3 to 4 until meat is falling apart and tender.
  5. If using peas, microwave for ~1 minute and then fold them into stew.
  6. Remove bay leaves. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Enjoy!
