Will my beef stew turn out okay?
I’m making beef stew in a crock pot, but I have a nagging concern that it’s going to come out wrong. Can you check my work?
Browned 1 lb of stew meat with oil and minced garlic.
Added 3 lbs of cubed potatoes, maybe a pound of baby carrots, a large onion cut in 8 pieces, some evoo, about 3 cups of water with bullion and tomato paste, ¾ cup of red wine that has gone off.
Added stew meat on top. Sprinkled with thyme and pepper. (And added green chile per the gf’s request.)
Do I have enough liquid? Any other seasoning I should consider?
