This beautiful slow-cooker version of a French classic is perfect for the cooler months, when you want to cuddle up by the fire and drink red wine with dinner. The only gluten-free modification is the use of gluten-free flour, and be sure to check the brand of stock cubes you use, as these can sometimes contain gluten.
