Beef Daube Provencal Recipe

Beef Daube Provencal is a classic French version of braised beef and vegetables. It is simple yet delicious. This is really great comfort food, perfect for those cold, winter days.

You start off with tough but cheap chuck roast (beef stew meat) but you'll end up with tender, flavorful beef in about 10 hours.

Because we're cooking this with a slow cooker, there's almost no liquid evaporation. If you would like to end up with a thicker stew, you might want to lightly coat the beef with flour prior to browning.

Or another option is to drain off some liquid at the end, put it on the stove for 10-15 mins to evaporate the excess liquid.

Or get some French bread and soak up all the yummy juice!
