Ingredients

  • 2 pounds chuck roast fat trimmed, then cut into 1/2 - 1-inch chunks (mine was 2.5 pounds, then 2 pounds after fat trimmed) 

  • 1/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt plus more to taste (I used 1 1/2 teaspoon) 

  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 6 cloves garlic minced

  • 1 small yellow onion diced
  • 4 Yukon Gold Potatoes cut into 1/2 - 1-inch chunks (1.5 pounds)
  • 4 carrots sliced into coins
  • 2 stalks celery sliced
  • 2 cups beef broth
  • 1/2 cup red wine I used cabernet sauvignon - could replace with more broth or water, but then you may want to adjust seasonings
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 2 bay leaves

Instructions

  • Grease your crockpot with cooking spray. Set aside.
  • Place cubed beef into a large bowl.
  • Toss with flour, salt, pepper, and paprika until each piece is evenly coated.
  • Place into crockpot and add in garlic, onion, potatoes, carrots, celery, broth, wine, Worcestershire sauce, and vinegar.
  • Stir to combine.
  • Top with bay leaves.
  • Cover and cook on LOW for 8-10 hours or HIGH for 4-6 hours.
  • Discard bay leaves and serve with crusty bread!

Notes

To make this gluten free, I'm sure an all purpose gluten free flour would work just fine! :) Also, be sure to check labels on other products used to be sure they're certified gluten free. 
*4 hours on high or 8 hours on low for me was perfect!
