Quick and Easy Beef Stew

"If more of us valued food and cheer and song above hoarded gold, it would be a merrier world." - J.R.R. Tolkein

While visiting an old college friend this week, we decided to throw a bunch of ingredients into her small crock pot to make stew for dinner. The Crockpot is God's gift to overworked and hungry people who don't have time to spend cooking in a kitchen.

Imitation Beef Burgundy
Makes 3-4 servings

  • about 1 lbs. of stew beef, cut into chunks and rinsed
  • 2/3 - 3/4 cup red wine (cooking wine works well)
  • 2/3 cup Mushrooms, sliced and rinsed
  • 1/2 chopped onion
  • 2 medium-sized cans stewed tomatoes (if you can find a brand with spices already added, choose them)
  • 1 cube beef bouillon
Place all of the ingredients into a Crockpot and let sit adjusted to the High setting for 2 hours. After 2 hours, put the setting down on low, and leave until dinner time (about 4 - 6 hours). Serve with bread, if desired.
