Italian Stewed Beef

Success - Article sent! close

3-3 pounds well-marbled beef, cut for stew

2 cans (14 ounces each) Italian-style stewed tomatoes, with juice

4 cups water

4 large cloves garlic

1 large onion, coarsely chopped

Place all ingredients in the bowl of a slow cooker. Stir and cover. Cook for 8-10 hours on low setting.

When beef is fork-tender, turn off heat and serve, or cool to store. Beef may be refrigerated for up to four days or frozen (in 1-cup increments) for up to three months.

Makes 8 cups.

Cook's note: Most slow cooker recipes call for 8-10 hours on low or 4-6 on high. But I found in testing this recipe that the meat was not nearly tender enough even at 6 hours on high. I strongly suggest using the lower temperature for only the longer period of time.

If you prefer to cook stove-top, bring the ingredients to a boil over high heat, then reduce heat and simmer on low, watching the liquid levels for 4 hours or until beef is fall-apart tender. Add water as necessary.
