Perfect Winter Beef Stew


Recipe & picture courtesy of Kraft Foods

Prep Time: 15 min
Total Time: 2 hr 15 min
Makes: 8 servings, 1-1/4 cups each

  • 3/4 cup KRAFT Zesty Italian Dressing
  • 2 lb. beef for stew, such as chuck roast, cut into 1-inch chunks
  • 6 slices OSCAR MAYER Bacon, chopped
  • 3 cups sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 6 carrots, sliced
  • 1-1/2 lb. potatoes, peeled, cut into large chunks
  • 1 can (14-1/2 oz.) stewed tomatoes, undrained
  • 1 can (14-1/2 oz.) beef broth
  1. Pour dressing over beef in shallow glass dish. Refrigerate 30 min. to marinate. Meanwhile, cook bacon in large saucepan on medium heat 5 min. or until crisp, stirring occasionally. Remove bacon from saucepan; discard drippings. Drain bacon on paper towels.
  2. Add mushrooms and onions to saucepan; cook on medium-high heat 10 min., stirring occasionally. Remove beef from marinade; discard marinade. Add beef, carrots, potatoes, tomatoes, broth and bacon to saucepan; stir.
  3. Bring to boil, stirring occasionally; cover. Simmer on low heat 1 hour 30 min. or until meat is done and sauce is thickened, stirring occasionally and removing the lid for the last 15 min..

How to Prepare Stew in Slow Cooker

  1. Marinate beef and cook bacon, onions and mushrooms as directed. Remove beef from marinade; discard marinade. Add beef, onions, mushrooms and remaining ingredients to slow cooker.
  2. Cook 10 to 12 hours on LOW (or 5 to 6 hours on HIGH). Stir in 2 Tbsp. flour mixed with 2 Tbsp. water. Cook 15 min. or until sauce is thickened.

**Personal Review: This had very little flavor – I would highly reccomend marinating the beef for more than 30 minutes to give the beef a bit more flavor.  We also ended up adding Franks Red Hot Sauce, garlic powder and salt & pepper to give it a bit more flavor.  I did this in the slow cooker as well on low heat.  We threw the leftovers into the fridge for the next day and it tasted great.  This was much better as a leftover than first taste.**

Texas-Style Brisket


Recipe & picture courtesy of Rachael Ray

SERVES 8
Prep Time: 30 min
Cook Time: 4 hr

  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • One 6- to 7-pound trimmed beef brisket, patted dry
  • 2/3 cup beef broth
  • 2/3 cup ketchup
  • 1/3 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons hot pepper sauce
  1. Soak 3 cups wood chips in water according to the package directions or for 1 hour. Meanwhile, mix together 2 1/2 teaspoons salt, 1 tablespoon pepper and the garlic powder; sprinkle all over the brisket.
  2. Remove the racks from the grill. Arrange a large drip pan or disposable baking sheet on one side of the grill to catch the drippings. Drain the wood chips and transfer to a 2-foot-long sheet of heavyduty foil. Wrap tightly, creating a secure pouch, then poke 10 holes in the top to create a smoker box. Place the pouch on the side of the grill opposite the drippings pan. Set the racks in place, close the grill and preheat to 350°.
  3. Arrange the brisket, fat side up, over the drip pan. Grill, covered, turning once, until lightly charred, about 30 minutes. Wrap with a large sheet of heavy-duty foil and return to the grill, fat side down. Lower the heat to 325° and grill until fork-tender, 2 1/2 to 3 hours. (Be careful when unwrapping the brisket, since there will be lots of juice inside the foil packet.).
  4. In a medium saucepan, bring the beef broth, ketchup, vinegar and hot sauce to a boil. Lower the heat to medium and simmer until thickened, about 10 minutes.
  5. Let the brisket rest, wrapped, for 30 minutes; carefully unwrap and pour the juices into a cup. Thinly slice the meat against the grain, arrange on a platter and pour the juices on top. Serve with the barbecue sauce on the side.

Slow Cooker Chili

Recipe source unknown

Serves 12

Spice mixture

  • 3 tbsp favorite chili powder
  • 3 tbsp New Mexico-style or a medium to hot chili powder
  • 2 tsp cumin
  • 1 tbsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar

Chili

  • 2 lbs beef sirloin or chuck, trimmed of fat
  • 1 large onion, peeled, chopped
  • 1 large green pepper, washed, cored, chopped
  • 2 tbsp canola oil, divided
  • 1 tsp crushed garlic
  • 2 cans (15 1/2 oz.) hot or mild chili beans
  • 1 can (28 oz) diced tomatoes with their liquid
  • 8 oz tomato sauce
  • 1 can (14 oz) less sodium beef broth
  1. In a small bowl, mix all the spice mixture ingredients; set aside.
  2. Place the beef in the freezer for 20 minutes before cutting into pieces.
  3. Meanwhile,, chop the onions and green pepper. In a large skillet, heat 1 tbsp of canola oil. Add the onions, and saute about 5-8 minutes. Add the green pepper and garlic, and continue cooking another 8 minutes. While the onions and green pepper cook, remove the meat from the freezer and dice it into small pieces.
  4. Place the onion mixture into a slow cooker. Add the remaining 1 tbsp of canola oil to the skillet and use medium-high heat. Working in batches if necessary, add the beef pieces to the skillet. Brown the meat on all sides. Sprinkle with a few tbsp of the spice mixture and toss to coat.
  5. Add the seasoned meat to the slow cooker. Stir in the beans, tomatoes, tomato sauce and half the beef broth and the remaining spice mixture. If the mixture seems to too thick, add more beef broth to desired consistency.
  6. Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours or until meat is very tender. Taste and adjust seasonings as necessary. Serve topped with shredded cheese and sliced greens and with corn bread.
