Slow-Cooker Beef Stew with Garlic, Herbs & Cannellini Beans
Tossing all the ingredients into a slow cooker makes this Italian-inspired beef stew virtually a hands-off meal. The long simmer time is the secret to the beef’s fork-tender texture and rich-tasting tomato-based gravy.
6-qt. or larger slow cooker; butcher’s twine or cheesecloth
