Easy Beef Bourguignon

I is kind of an oxymoron - easy beef bourguignon.  But this ain't Julia Childs' version.  This one is in the crock pot - perfect for a make ahead weeknight meal.

What you'll need:
1 pound of beef - I used pot roast
1 onion
4 carrots, peeled and chopped
3 celery stalks, chopped
2 cloves of garlic, chopped
2 cups red wine
1 can beef broth
1/2 can tomato paste
1 bay leaf
salt and pepper to taste

What you'll do:
Brown the meat in a skillet.  Season with salt and pepper.  Remove and add to crockpot.  In the same pan as you browned the beef, brown the carrots, onions, celery and garlic.  Season also with salt and pepper.  Add to the crock pot.  Add beef broth, wine, tomato paste and bay leaf.  Stir together and cook on low for 8 hours.  We had ours with peas and mashed taters.
