    Default Easy Slow Cooker Tuscan Beef Stew

    Makes 8 (1-cup) servings

    Prep Time: 15 minutes

    Cook Time: 8 hours on LOW or 4 hours on HIGH

    1 tablespoon McCormick® Mixed Pickling Spice

    2 pounds beef stew meat, trimmed and cut into 1 to 1 1/2-inch cubes

    1 medium onion, cut into medium wedges

    4 carrots, cut into 1/2-inch slices

    1 teaspoon McCormick® Rosemary Leaves, crushed

    1 teaspoon McCormick® Garlic Powder

    2 beef bouillon cubes

    2 cans (14 1/2 ounces each) diced tomatoes, undrained

    1 cup dry red wine

    1 tablespoon flour

    8 slices day-old Italian bread, toasted


    1. Place the pickling spice in the center of a piece of cheesecloth or coffee filter. Tie tightly with a long piece of string.

    2. Place beef cubes, onion, carrot, crushed rosemary, garlic powder and bouillon cubes to slow cooker. Stir in tomatoes and wine. Add pickling spice bundle; cover.

    3. Cook 8 hours on LOW or 4 hours on HIGH. Remove pickling spice bundle.

    4. Thicken stew by mixing flour with 1 tablespoon water in medium bowl until smooth. Stir in several tablespoons hot liquid from stew, then stir flour mixture into stew. Cook and stir 2 to 3 minutes or until stew thickens slightly. To serve, place 1 slice bread in each bowl. Spoon stew over bread.

    IMPORTANT: For best results, do not remove cover during cooking
