  • 2 TBSP Fresh Thyme (minced)

In a bowl, mix the Fullblood Wagyu beef for stewing until the pieces are fully coated with 1/3 cup of flour, 2 teaspoons of kosher salt, and 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper.

Heat 2 tablespoons of grapeseed oil in a large sauté pan over medium-high heat. Sear the pieces of beef for 4 minutes until all sides are nicely browned.

Remove the Fullblood Wagyu beef from the pan, and place it in the crock pot. Set aside.

Cook for 5 minutes.

Deglaze the pan with red wine, and cook for 3 minutes.

Add the beef stock and garlic cloves to the pan. Cook for 5 minutes.

Pour this mixture over the Fullblood Wagyu beef in the crockpot. Add the thyme and bay leaves to the crockpot.

Cook all ingredients for 5 hours in the crockpot.

Add the cut potatoes to the crockpot.

Cook ingredients (including potatoes) for an additional 2 hours.



Add the balsamic vinegar to the cooked beef stew.

Season with kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper. Add more balsamic vinegar (to taste) if needed.

Serve, and enjoy!
