Ingredients & Health Benefits

Beef Brisket: I love Organic Prairie Beef Brisket because it's pasture raised beef that's from the US.

Yellow Onion: Organic yellow onion gives this recipe lots of flavor. Plus, onions are loaded with antioxidants.

Butter: I use Organic Valley Salted Butter. You can use unsalted if that's all you have, just add a pinch of salt.

Worcestershire Sauce: I use organic Worcestershire sauce.

Red Wine: I use organic Dry Farm Wines Red Wine.

Bone Broth: I love Kettle & Fire Beef Bone Broth as bone both has added protein, nutrients, and collagen! Use code MIMIBAKESCOOKIES for 20% off your Kettle & Fire order. You can also use beef stock in its place too.

All Purpose Flour: My faveorite is Cairnspring Mills Organic All Purpose Flour.

Tomato: Organic tomatoes contain calcium, vitamin K, and lycopene (all red veggies have lycopene) and this can help protect against the sun as well as make your skin radiant and protect from free radical damage and scarring.

Garlic Cloves: You can use organic garlic cloves or minced garlic, both will work. Garlic has antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties.

Tomato Paste: I use organic tomato paste, it's helpful for concentrated flavor, like in this recipe.

Baby Gold Potatoes: I'm using organic Baby Gold potatoes, but you can Red or Russet or even Sweet potatoes. Potatoes are a great healthy carb for lasting enery.

Carrots: I use organic large carrots, but babies are fine too. Carrots have lots of vitamin A.

Celery: Organic celery contains potassium, which is essential for regulating blood pressure.

Bay Leaves: I use organic bay leaves for that classic stew flavor. Bay leaves can help improve digestion and inflammation.

How to Make Slow Cooker Beef Brisket Stew

Step 1

Pat dry brisket with a paper towel, and place on a plate. Set aside. 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.

Step 2

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 3

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 4

Remove ½ 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.

Step 5

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.

Step 6

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. Before serving, shred beef into small pieces and stir stew.
