- 2 teaspoons herbes de provence or oregano, rosemary, thyme
- 1 bottle pinot noir
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 onion, brown, thinly sliced

Start by marinating the meat overnight. Generously sprinkle some salt and pepper and Herbes de Provence on a flat plate. Roll the diced meat through the mixture to season well. Place the meat in a bowl and add half the bottle of Pinot Noir. Stir, cover and refrigerate overnight.
The next day using kitchen towel blot the meat pieces dry. Add the oil to a large, hot frypan and quickly sear the meat in batches on all sides. Reserve the cooked meat. When all meat is cooked, add the onion and garlic. Saute for 2 minutes. Add the celery, carrots and parsnip. Saute for a further 5 minutes.
Place the vegetables in the crock pot. Add the browned meat, bay leaves and the remaining half bottle of pinot noir. Turn crock pot to low and cook for 4 hours. Add the quartered mushrooms. Cook for a further 4 hours on low.
Serve with mashed potatoes and garlic-roasted asparagus.
