Rich and Warming ‘Chocolate & Chilli Slow Cooked Beef Stew’

The colder months will soon be upon us which can only mean one thing, my ever faithful slow cooker will be making a re-appearance in the kitchen. This beautiful ‘Chocolate And Chilli Slow Cooked Beef Stew’ is warming and rich; the perfect meal to enjoy with the family around the dining table on a chilly evening.

Now, I know some people sigh when you mention the word ‘slow cooker’ but I absolutely love mine. Gone are the days of dull, gravy flavoured mushy carrots; sorry to all of you who love a gravy flavoured carrot, we’re not a fan in our house!! There are so many unique slow cooker recipes out there waiting to be tried and tested….like this one! For me, it is so comforting to know there is a fresh, healthy, home cooked meal simmering away waiting for the family to enjoy together after a busy day. All that’s left to do once you get home is pop on some rice or boil a pan of potatoes and you have a hearty evening meal ready to go in no time at all. The combination of the rich chocolate and warming chilli work so well together in this recipe; the final result is delicious. Perfect for serving with a bottle of Velvet Devil Merlot too!

Go on, give our ‘Chocolate and Chilli Slow Cooked Beef Stew’ a try, it may become a favourite!
