Baked with Love; Beef and Red Wine casserole

With the weather cooling considerably and the sky blackened by dinner time, there is nothing more comforting that a hot and hearty casserole. Add the aroma of red wine? Delish! I particularly like this recipe for the smell it gives my house...nothing like the smell of red wine on a Friday night! As you know, I only attempt recipes with minimal work and skill this one is a slowcooker version.

Beef and Red Wine Casserole

1kg Gravy beef
2 tablespoons olive oil
6 tablespoons crushed garlic
5 rashes of bacon
3 carrots
3 brown onions
1 cup of red wine
1 cup of beef stock
1 cup of water
2 tablespoons cornflour

(This recipe makes a large amount; enough to serve 4 adults, or enough to serve 2 with the remaining being ideal for freezing)

Chop the beef into bite sized pieces and brown in a pan. Add the beef and remaining ingredients to the slowcooker and cook on low for 6-8 hours. Thicken with cornflour 30 minutes before serving.

If you are in need of warming up and comforting; whip out that slow-cooker and give it a whirl!
Plenty of love,
