This slow cooker beef stew with red wine and potatoes is a delicious warming casserole for winter nights your whole family will love. What I love about slow cookers is you can save your money and use a cheap cut of meat and it will still be melt-in-your-mouth tender.

The potatoes will soak up the juices as they gently soften. Tip: Don’t cut them too small otherwise they might be too mushy by the end of the cooking time. I find the bigger the better.

My slow cooker is quite small, it was full to the brim when I turned it on for this recipe! If you have a bigger cooker you could add some extra vegetables like some carrots or swede.

If you are not ready to eat your delicious meal at the end of the cooking time make sure you keep it warm safely.
