Enjoy the weekend by NOT having to spend the entire time over the stove. This slow cooker recipe is perfect for a day around the TV watching football and enjoying a drink with friends.  I’ve also had it cook all day at the office, and I came home to the tangy aroma of the beef stewing about my apartment.
