I made this yesterday, and everyone liked it, including the kids.
Crock Pot Beef Stew
Chop the onion and garlic. Peel and cube the turnips and parsnips.
Brown the stew beef in olive oil and remove to crock pot with drippings. Add a bit more oil to the pan and saute onion and garlic for a few minutes. Add 1/2 c red wine to frying pan and heat, then add contents of pan to crock pot.
Add remainder of ingredients to crock pot and cook on high for 6 hours.
