Prep Time20 mins
Cook Time6 hrs
Total Time6 hrs 20 mins
- 2 lbs beef -- Chuck or Angus
- 2 cups beef broth
- 3 tbsp cornstarch
- 2 tbsp salt
- 1 tsp black pepper
- 1 tbsp brown sugar
- 1 yellow onion sliced
- 1 clove garlic minced
- 2 bay leaves
- 2 tbsp olive oil
Heat 2 tbsp olive oil in a skillet on low-medium heat. While it's warming up, cut your beef into quarters.
In a bowl, combine the cornstarch, salt and pepper. Coat your beef quarters in this mixture, and once the oil is sizzling, drop in your beef. You're looking to sear in the flavour.
Set your slow cooker on low, and combine the beef broth, onion, garlic, brown sugar and bay leaves. This is gonna be the base for your beef.
Once your beef is seared on all sides, drop it into the slow cooker + set it (ON LOW!) for 6-8 hours.
