Delicious Slow Cooker Beef Stew with Potatoes & Carrots (Moscharaki me Patates kai Karota)

This recipe is usually made during the Winter Season rather than in the Summer, at least this is what I think just because it is not a light meal, and with the heat I believe we should be eating cold and lighter dishes.  The weather here the past few days has been a bit more chilly, sunny but wonderfully chilly, so this gave me a chance to make this recipe 🙂  No heatwaves woo hooo!  I have been trying to pack for our trip but I still have not finished some other projects that I have taken on  I am hoping to finish by Tuesday of next week.  

This is a lovely Greek Beef Stew with a bit of twist, I have added a few tablespoons of Balsamic Vinegar. Yep!  and it tastes fabulous, the reason is that the vinegar gives this recipe a slight tangy taste.   The traditional Greek Beef Stew has no Vinegar, and it is not made in a slow cooker but it does cook for over 2 hours on low heat so that the meat can become tender.

As for me I love to discover new tastes in old recipes this is what I have been doing for a while. 🙂    Try it out and let me know your thoughts!! 🙂

Have a lovely weekend everyone!! 🙂
