Slow-cooked French beef stew

The slow cooker is ideal for this classic recipe. I've simplified the method by not browning the beef, the result is more tender meat with less shrinkage. It's important to buy the recommended cuts of beef as they're high in connective tissue, maximising flavour. Plus, they're more affordable. Don't exclude the anchovies, they really spark the beefy flavour of this wonderful stew...
