Very simple but great even for a dinner party.
Get a good cut of beef from the butcher diced into pieces. I got just over a kilo for 6 and there was a bit left over. Fry this in fat (I used some turkey fat that I had skimmed from a roast but goose would also be good). Put this in the slow cooker.
Add a couple of tbsps of tomato puree and tip all this into the slow cooker.
Add a whole bottle of GOOD red wine. Burgundy or Bordeaux works well. Cook or about 8 hours on slow and then allow to cool and keep in the fridge overnight.
Then reheat in the slow cooker for about 4 hours before you want to eat it. Works well with dauphinoise potatoes and green beans, red cabbage and carrots.
