Slow-Cooked Mediterranean Beef Stew

It is not always possible to make a wholesome meal when we are living such rushed lives. This is when a slow-cooker comes in very handy. I share a lovely recipe for making a slow-cooked beef stew with tastes reminescent of the mediterranean, in today's blog. The beauty of this dish is that you can put it in the slow-cooker before you leave for work, and will be ready to serve when you walk back in the door.

Put approximately 1,5 kg of stewing beef in a pot, along with a cup (250 ml) water.

Finely chop 2 onions and add it to the pot.

Chop 3 large tomatoes and add it to the pot.

Add 1 tablespoon (12,5 ml) sugar, 1 teaspoon (5 ml) fine cinnamon powder, 3 bay leaves, 1 teaspoon (5 ml) pimento (all spice) and 6 teaspoons (30 ml) crushed garlic to the pot.

Add 4 tablespoons (50 ml) red wine vinegar.

Set on high and cook for 4-6 hours, or set on medium and cook for 7-8 hours. If the sauce is very runny at the end of the cooking time, thicken with cake flour and water paste.

Serve on a bed of macaroni or risotto.
