The Dinner Diva

 

Dinner is waiting.... thanks to the slow cooker.

One of my favorite things is to walk into the house after work and smell dinner. Since my dogs can't cook, my only option is the slowcooker. And this recipe not only smells delicious, it is. So grab a loaf of crust bread and a bottle of red, and  you're set!

Red Eye Brisket Stew
(From Country Living Magazine)

Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 c. beef stock
  • 3 tbsp. all-purpose flour
  • 1 tbsp. Djion mustard
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 tbsp. canola oil
  • 2 1/2 lb. brisket, trimmed and cut into 2-in. pieces
  • 3/4 c. brewed coffee
  • 1 1/2 lb. new potatoes, halved
  • 1/2 lb. carrots, cut into 2-in. pieces
  • 1/2 lb. parsnips, cut into 2-in. pieces
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 4 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 4 fresh thyme sprigs, plus leaves for garnish
  • 1 bay leaf
  • Cornbread, for serving
For the Pickled Red Onions
  • 1 c. seasoned rice vinegar
  • 1 garlic clove, chopped
  • 2 tsp. Kosher salt
  • 1/2 red onion

Directions

  1. Whisk together stock flour, Dijon, 1 teaspoon salt, 1/2 teaspoon pepper in a 6-quart slow cooker.
  2. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Season brisket with salt and pepper. Cook, in batches, until browned on all side, 4 to 6 minutes. Remove to slow cooker; reserve skillet and cook, scraping up brown bits, 30 seconds; add to slow cooker.
  3. Add potatoes, carrots, parsnips, onion, garlic, thyme, and bay leaf to slow cooker and stir to combine. Cover and cook until beef is tender, on low for 7 to 8 hours or on high for 3 to 4 hours. Discard thyme sprigs and bay leaf. Season with salt and pepper.
  4. Serve topped with thyme leaves and Pickled Red Onions, and cornbread alongside.
  5. Make the Pickled Red Onions: Stir together rice vinegar, garlic, 1/2 cup water, and 2 teaspoons kosher salt in a medium saucepan. Bring to a simmer over medium heat. Remove from heat and stir in 1/2 sliced red onion. Let stand until softened, 25 to 30 minutes.
