  • 1 pound beef tenderloin
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 1-2 cups of beef broth
  • 3 large New York McIntosh apples
  • 2 Tablespoons butter
  • 1 large onion, diced
  • 3 cloves garlic, roughly chopped
  • 2 Tablespoons beef bouillon powder or 2 cubes
  • 2 Tablespoons corn starch


  1. Slice beef tenderloin into small medallions, about 1 to 1 ½ inches thick. Sear over high heat in olive oil, 30 seconds each side. Place beef tenderloin in slow cooker and cover with beef broth.
  2. Core and quarter apples and place in the slow cooker with butter, diced onions, garlic cloves, and beef bouillon powder or cubes. Cook on low for approximately 6 hours.
  3. After 6 hours, ladle about ¾ cup liquid into a bowl and whisk with cornstarch. Return cornstarch mixture to crockpot, stir, and cook on high for an additional 20 minutes. This will ensure a thick, rich stew.
