Great starter recipe, Claire.
I adapted it for my crock pot by first searing the seasoned meat and then sauteing onions with cremini and oyster mushrooms. Those went into the crock with approximately two cups of beef stock, a splash of red wine, a dash of Lea and Perrins and a thyme bundle. Yum.""

Thanks, Sunny!"
