This is a tasty beef stew with vegetables, herbs, wine and a touch of brandy.  It’s easy to fix in a slow cooker and tastes so good when eaten in a warm, cozy kitchen or maybe in front of the fireplace.

  1. Looks like a good recipe, and the interesting thing is that it doesn’t take much meat to make it tasty. I like chuck steak and roast better than any other beef, so I know it wouldn’t cost much to make this one!
