Slow Cooker Balsamic Beef - an original recipe by Caroline Makes
1 large shallot, sliced into two or three
400-500g braising steak
1 beef stock cube made up to 3/4 pint with hot water
1/4 tsp garlic puree or 1 garlic clove, crushed
1 tbsp tomato puree
1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
Mix the stock, garlic, tomato puree and vinegar and pour into your slow cooker. Place the onion pieces in the bottom and place the meat on top. Add more water if necessary so the beef is just covered.
Place the lid on your slow cooker and cook on high for about 2 hours or medium for 4 hours (mine has an auto setting that cooks on medium for 4 hours then keeps warm until I get home from work which is very handy).
Serve with veg and boiled or mashed potatoes.
This is a great second day dish as well if you cook enough for two but there is only one person eating it, as there was in my case.
For that reason I'm sending this to Cook Once Eat Twice hosted by Corinna at Searching for Spice.
