While getting my hair "restored", cut and styled, I found this recipe in the 11/03 issue of Women's Day. I like the long cooking time, gives you all day to do other things - like getting your hair restored !
- 2 teaspoons beef bouillon granules
- 1⁄4 cup boiling water
- 1 (14 1/2 ounce) can diced tomatoes
- 1 cup dry red wine
- 1 (1 7/8 ounce) box leek soup mix
- 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
- 4 garlic cloves, crushed
- 1 teaspoon dried thyme
- 1 teaspoon dried marjoram
- 1 teaspoon dried rosemary

- 8 ounces parsnips, sliced
- 3 tablespoons flour
- 1⁄4 cup cold water
- Add bouillon to water, stir to dissolve and pour into crock pot.
- Add tomatoes, wine, soup mix, Worcestershire, garlic and herbs and mix to combine.
- Add roast and turn to coat with mixture.

- Remove roast and cover with foil.
- Turn cooker up to High, whisk flour and water until smooth, add to the pot and stir to combine.

This recipe was excellent. I did not use the bouillon or the leek soup mix. Instead I used more wine and water that the recipe called for. I also used potatoes instead of the parsnips. Overall it was great and had an excellent flavor with the diced tomatoes and all the spices.
This recipe is unbelievable. I made it exactly as the recipe suggested, and was amazed at the combination of the spices. I did not thicken the broth, since it was so delicious as is. Thank you for sharing!
I can't believe I haven't tried this recipe a long time ago because it is a packed full of flavor. I love the combination of ingredients. I also found this in a 2005 Women's Day Magazine. It must be such a good recipe that the printed it a second time three years later. LOL. I served it with side salad and garlic mashed potatoes. Next time, I think I might add some green beans the last few hours of cooking. Thanks for posting.
