"I have long believed that good food, good eating is all about risk. Whether we're talking about unpasteurized Stilton, raw oysters or working for organized crime 'associates,' food, for me, has always been an adventure."--Anthony Bourdain

Jennifer Moody


1 T. olive oil
1 lbs. beef chuck or sirloin, cut into large bite-size pieces
1 tsp. salt
tsp. pepper
1 medium, onion, chopped
6 garlic cloves, minced

1 T. unsalted butter
cup all-purpose flour
4 cups beef stock
1 T. soy sauce
1 T. Worcestershire sauce
1 tsp. Dijon mustard
1 tsp. beef bouillon
1 tsp. sugar
tsp. parsley
tsp. paprika
tsp. dried oregano
tsp. dried thyme
Fresh chopped parsley, for garnish

After cutting the meat and while it is still on the cutting board, toss it with 1 teaspoon salt and teaspoon pepper. Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add beef in singe layer (work in 2 batches if needed) to the hot skillet and let cook for approximately 2 minutes, without stirring. Let it cook until it has a nice sear/crust on one side (this will give it a lot of flavor). then continue to cook while stirring until beef is browned all over but not cooked all the way through. Transfer beef to 6-quart slow cooker and top with chopped onions and minced garlic. To the remaining juices left in the skillet, melt 1 tablespoon butter. Whisk in the flour until dissolved. Add in the remaining gravy ingredients. Bring this to a boil then reduce to a simmer until thickened to the consistency of thick gravy. Make sure you let it get thick enough because it will thin out a bit in the slow cooker. Add to slow cooker and stir it to combine all ingredients. Cook on HIGH for 3-4 hours or on LOW for 5-7 hours. Beef is ready when it is melt-in-your-mouth tender. Add additional salt and pepper, if needed. Garnish with fresh, chopped parsley for color. Serve over mashed potatoes, egg noodles or rice.
