Garlic Lover’s Beef Stew


Garlic Lover’s Beef Stew truly is a mouth-watering stew for those of us who love garlic! It will come as no secret when you hear that I adore garlic! I think it’s down to all my time spent in Mediterranean countries where they love to cook with garlic. And lots of it! This recipe is a great way for me to get my garlic fix!

I use a slow cooker for this recipe. It is so easy! I start by browning the meat and cooking the garlic. I make a base for the sauce by deglazing the pan with red wine. Then I place all the remaining ingredients in the slow cooker for 8-10 hours until the beef is falling apart. I serve mine with hot mashed potatoes. It is my favorite comfort food.
