Comments on Beef and fennel stew

This beef and fennel stew is made in a crock pot, but it can also be made in a Dutch oven. The fennel gives it a light taste. The potatoes can also be served on a side.

Gravatar van Emily Delicious! HOWEVER, it needs more like 8 hours on low in a slow cooker; the meat and veg will still be tough after only 5 hours. I use chicken stock because that’s what I have, and vermouth instead of red wine (it keeps in the fridge for months if you're just using it for recipes). I also add star anise to up the fennel flavor and some thyme. Save the fennel leaves, they make an excellent garnish! What a great winter meal to prep in the morning and find ready for you and yours at dinner. (っ˘ڡ˘ς) Enjoy!

Gravatar van Ohmydish Hi Emily, thank you for your comment! My stew was perfect after 5 hours, so I would say time depends on the type of slow cooker and maybe also the meat you're using. Vermouth sounds amazing, that's always great for cooking! Always save the fennel leaves indeed :) Have a great evening!
