Country Garden Beef Stew

Bonjour my friends,

Spring is coming up, at least for some of us. Not to make any of you out there jealous, but I’m writing this post after taking a nice break on my sunny balcony sipping away a cold glass of apple cider… Granted, I’m in New Mexico. The weather is still deciding which way it wants to go, but on days like today, it is so beautiful outside it is a shame to be stuck indoors all day.

In the spirit of solidarity, and because I did live in Quebec for several years so I know what cold means, this week’s recipe is an attempt to bring some warmth to your evenings. As mentioned in a previous post, I am a big fan of the slow cooker. First reason, it’s easy. Second reason, you come back home from a long day at work and it smells like your grand-mother has been “slaving” away in the kitchen all day. And third reason, it’s delicious!

I especially love slow cooked meat, nothing better than a piece of meat that melts in your mouth. This recipe, like many slow cooked recipes, is very easy to prepare and is also fairly low carb (for the ones that are starting to prepare for bikini season!)
