I adapted this from a recipe on the back of a Continental Hearty Beef Simmer Soup pack. We enjoyed it as a savoury, warming meal on a Queensland winter night (which can be surprisingly chilly!) Just be aware that this recipe seems to soak up liquid, so although the original recipe calls for only 1 cup red wine, you might want to add more water towards the end of cooking - depends on your taste.
- Place beef in crockpot.
- Combine soup mix, wine/water and mustard.
- Pour over beef.
- Cover and cook for 6 - 8 hours or until tender, adding frozen vegetables 1 hour before cooking is complete.
- Add sufficient water (if required) to achieve desired consistency approximately 1 hour before dish is cooked.
