DESCRIPTION
This slow cooker braised beef is an easy solution to the weeknight dinner dilemma facing your family. Let the slow cooker do all the work for you!

INGREDIENTS
  • 3 lbs. beef chuck roast (cut into large cubes)
  • 1 large yellow onion (diced)
  • 4 cloves garlic (minced)
  • 4 tablespoons + 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 4 cups beef broth
  • 1 cup bourbon
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • Kosher salt
  • fresh cracked pepper
INSTRUCTIONS
  1. Heat 2 tablespoons oil a large saute pan over medium high heat. Season beef with a liberal amount of salt and pepper. Working in two batches, sear all sides of each piece of beef until dark brown. A good rule of thumb is that the meat is done searing when it can easily be removed from the surface of the pan; if it’s sticking it’s not done yet. You are not trying to cook the meat through at this point, just adding a layer of flavor. Transfer seared beef to a large crock pot. Add 2 more tablespoons olive oil to the pan and sear remaining batch of beef, then transfer to crock pot.
  2. Add remaining 2 teaspoons olive oil to the same pan and turn heat to medium. Add onion and a pinch of salt and pepper. Saute, stirring frequently for 4 minutes. Then add garlic and saute for another minute, stirring frequently. Transfer onion and garlic to the crock pot. Then add beef broth, bourbon, Worcestershire, Dijon, thyme and a liberal amount of salt and pepper. Stir to combine, cover and cook on high for 4-5 hours or until the beef is fork tender and pulls apart easily. Serve with my favorite garlic mashed sweet potatoes. Enjoy!
