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 4y 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.
