How to Make Slow Cooker Beef Brisket Stew

Step 1

First, you will pat dry brisket with a paper towel, and place on a plate. Set aside. This helps remove some of the fat and moisture so the seasoning can stick to it.

Preheat your slow cooker to 500°F on brown/sauté setting. Alternatively, if you do not have this setting, you can sear brisket in the skillet over high heat.

Dice half of the onion. In a large skillet over medium heat, add the butter and diced onions. Sauté until translucent and fragrant, about 5 to 10 minutes.

Step 2

While the onions are cooking, generously salt and pepper all sides of the brisket. Sear all sides of the brisket in the slow cooker, each side will take about 1 to 2 minutes.

Switch slow cooker to the low setting. Add the onions to the slow cooker, half under the brisket and the other half on top of the brisket. Make sure the brisket is fat side up.

Add the bone broth and Worcestershire sauce to the slow cooker.

Slow cook for 6 hours.

Step 3

Remove 1/2 cup beef broth from the slow cooker and add to a large skillet with the red wine. Heat on high, and once simmering slowly add in the flour while whisking to combine completely.

Add tomatoes, garlic, and tomato paste to the skillet and whisk to combine completely. Allow to simmer on low, stirring occasionally, for about 10 minutes or until it has thickened slightly.

While the wine mixture is simmering, rough chop the remaining half of onion and set aside with the potatoes, carrots, and celery.

Optional: If want a leaner stew, you can remove some of the fat from the brisket at this time.

Pour the wine mixture into the slow cooker and add in the potatoes, onions, carrots, celery, and bay leaves.

Cook on low for an additional 2 hours.

Why go organic?

You may be wondering why I push organic ingredients for everything, even savory and healthy dishes. Organic ingredients go beyond just health and wellness, and contribute so much to the taste and flavor of a recipe. So, if you think that you’re making something healthy and buying fruits, veggies, or meats so maybe you don’t need to spend the extra to go organic here – let me sway your thinking.

Organic ingredients are made in a more pure way, therefore using no additives, no GMOs, and minimal ingredients. This really allows the true ingredients to shine – and because of that their flavor shines through. Therefore, organic ingredients are more flavorful than their non organic counterparts. So, just because it’s already a healthy recipe, or you’re already buying good for you ingredients – it doesn’t mean you can skip organic! Trust me here, and make the switch. Your body and your taste buds will thank you!

So, I highly recommend that you buy the best organic ingredients for this recipe! You can also shop my Amazon Storefront for all my favorite organic ingredients here. Tip – hover over each ingredient to see the name. And if you want to learn more about organic foods and the difference, read my post here on Food Labels and What They Mean.
