In a saucepan: over medium heat, add olive oil and braise the beef until browned on all sides. Remove beef to the slow cooker and pour in 1/2 cup of red wine to deglaze the pan. Once all the beef bits have been lifted from the pan, pour contents into a slow cooker.

In a slow cooker: add salt, pepper, onion, carrots, garlic, stock, remaining wine, bay leaf, thyme and cayenne. Cover and set temperature to low. Let cook for 8 hrs.

Lift the lid and allow the liquid to cook down a bit. You need to sample the juices and season with salt and pepper to taste, before serving.
