I don't follow a specific recipe, but basically it is as follows, with amounts to suit how many portions you want to make, or the size of your slow cooker you are using.
Lean braising/stewing steak/beef or a joint of brisket cut up into cubes, red onion, carrots, button mushrooms, garlic and a bouquet garni, put in the slow cooker, seasoned with salt and ground black pepper, then cover with equal quantities of beef stock and red wine.
I tend to cook it on high, then reduce to low or medium, when it looks almost cooked, which can vary depending on the meat.
800g stewing steak
1 large onion (chunks)
200g button mushrooms (in half)
1 large green pepper (chunked)
2 chicken stock cubes
2 pints water
1 tablespoon each of dark and light soy sauce
1 tsp each fresh, garlic and ginger
1 tbsp mild curry powder
1/2 tsp five spice.
fry off the onion, mushrooms and green pepper with the garlic and ginger.
Add all of the ingredients to a slow cooker and cook for at least 6 hours!
