Top-ranked recipe named "Tuscan Beef Stew"
1. Place pickling spice in the center of a piece of cheesecloth or a coffee filter. Tie tightly with a long piece of string; set aside.
2. Add beef to 4-quart or larger slow cooker; sprinkle with 1 tablespoon flour and toss to coat. Add carrots, onion, garlic powder, rosemary, salt, tomatoes with juice and wine or broth; mix together. Add pickling spice bundle (with string hanging out of cooker); cover. Cook on low 7 hours.
3. Remove pickling spice bundle. Thicken stew by mixing remaining flour with 1 tablespoon water in a small bowl until smooth. Stir in several tablespoons of hot liquid from stew, then stir flour mixture into stew. Cook and stir 2 to 3 minutes or until stew thickens slightly, and serve.
Recipe note: Look for pickling spices with the other spices.
dakotarussell 3 years agoIt isn't your typical beef stew. The wine, tomatoes, and pickling spice make it somewhat sweet and aromatic. It wasn't particularly my cup of tea, but I think that's my tastes, not the recipe. I'd recommend giving it a try.
