Prep: 15 mins
Cook: 8 hrs
8 hrs 15 mins
Yields: 3-4 servings
600g diced beef
1x carrot peeled and chopped (if you would like like to turn this into a pie its best to grate)
2-3 small mushrooms diced
1x brown onion peeled and diced
1/2 cup corn flour
4tbs tomato sauce
2tbs Worcestershire sauce
1x cup of beer
2x cups of beef stock
3tsp minced garlic
2x bay leaves
Salt and pepper
Your favourite gravy powder (I like using Gravox Brown Onion gravy)
1Coat beef with corn flour and using a sauté pan with a little oil cook in batches, you just want to brown the beef slightly.
2Place all ingredients in your slow cooker and cook for 6-8 hours on low or until beef is really tender.
3When your beef is almost ready thicken it with gravy powder. Use 3tsps of gravy powder and mix it with 3tbs of water pour it in your slow cooker mix well and repeat till sauce is lovely and thick.
4Take the bay leaves out of your slow cooker and then your dish is ready serve. I love mine served with a good mashed potato.
1Even if you don't like beer (like me) you will enjoy this dish. The beer flavour is very subtle and it helps makes your beef extra tender. Chose a beer that you can tolerate the flavour of if you can, I like using Cascade Draught or Pure Blonde. This casserole makes a fantastic beef and beer pie as well, if you search Beef and Beer Pie on this website you can see my step by step instructions.
