Ingredients
Cornstarch Slurry
Instructions
  1. Cube beef into 1 in pieces if chuck roast or other whole beef cut is being used
  2. Slice the carrots, celery and onion into thick slices. Cut potato into 1 1/2-2 inch cubes.
  3. Add beef, vegetables, herbs, pepper and garlic powder into crock pot except for bay leaf. Pour beef broth and wine (optional) into crock pot and mix in with herbs and spices.
  4. In a separate bowl, mix cold water and cornstarch until cornstarch is dissolved. It’s important to use cold water as cornstarch tends to clump up in warm or hot water.
  5. Add slurry into crock-pot and stir. Add bay leaves (make sure they are submerged) and set to crock-pot to low for 8 hours.
  6. Add salt to taste.
Recipe Notes

After the 6th hour if you want the broth to be a little thicker, you can add more cornstarch slurry. Same way as you added in the beginning dissolve in cold water first, then add to crock-pot. Stir thoroughly (be mindful of the bay leaves as they break easily).
