Slow-cooked stew in wine

A yummy slow-cooked stew, with your choice of white or red meat. We loved this recipe so much that we had the dish twice in two days: with beef and chicken respectively! The only non-standard kitchen appliance you will need is a slow-cooker, aka Crock-Pot. It’s worth the 30 bucks it costs.

Ingredients (for 2)
* 350 gr of red or white meat of your choice
* 1/4 cup of red wine (white wine will do too)
* 2 baby potatoes (the ones that are eatable with skin)
* 90 gr frozen French green beans
* 3/4 cup of canned chunked tomatoes
* 1/4 cup of chunked carrots
* 80 gr green frozen peas
* 5 button mushrooms
* 1 tbspoon white flour
* 1 stick of celery
* 1 garlic clove
* 1 shallot
* 1 tbspoon of olive oil
* salt, pepper to taste

Execution
1. Turn ON the crock-pot on “high”. Cut the meat in big chunks and place it in the crock-pot. Sprinkle on top of the meat the flour. Replace the cover on the crock-pot.
2. On a cutting board, prepare the vegetables: Slice the shallot, carrots, garlic, celery and cut the mushrooms in half. Place them all in the crock-pot and then also add the frozen green beans and peas.
3. Remove some of the water from the tomato can, and then cover the ingredients in the crock-pot with the chunky tomatoes. Add the wine and 1 tbspoon of olive oil. Sprinkle a bit of salt and pepper. Stir, replace the cover.
4. If you chose chicken/turkey, cook for 3 to 3.5 hours. If you’ve chosen game or other red meat, cook for 5 hours.
5. Add the washed baby potatoes (with their skin) just 1 hour before you turn off the crock-pot. Serve hot!
