Lazy Carbonada Criolla or Argentine Beef Stew

In Argentina, a carbonada criolla is a beautiful beef stew served in a cooked pumpkin.

Today, I had no time to fiddle with a pumpkin, and they’re out of season. So Ye Olde Crock Pot it was. Also, instead of braising the meat in beer, I used some left-over white wine and one can (gasp, I didn’t make it myself) of beef broth, the low sodium variety.

When done, it’s excellent served over brown rice, polenta or potatoes.

Instructions

  1. 1Put the olive oil in the bottom of the crock pot. Turn on the crock pot. Add the meat, onion, spices, wine, broth and tomatoes—-and walk away until it’s done.
    I usually cook on high for 2 hours (if I’m home) and the lower it for another 3 hours. Or cook on low for 6-8 hours.
