Slow Cooked Red Wine Beef Stew

Slow Cooked Red Wine Beef Stew

This Provencal-inspired stew is full of fork-tender braised beef, hearty red wine and aromatic herbs.

When life gives you a tiny bit more time to think about the day ahead — on weekends, for example — nothing seems more luxurious than getting dinner underway hours in advance.

For me, that means putting on something comfy and turning the oven on to start slow-cooking.

Sliding a pot full of meat, vegetables and wine-rich broth into the oven for a few hours not only fills the house with amazing smells, but leaves you hands-free to do other things.
