Total Time 8 hours 15 minutes


  • 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
  • 1tsp thyme
  • 1tsp parsley
  • 3tsp minced garlic
  • 2x bay leaves
  • Salt and pepper
  • 2tbs oil
  • Your favourite gravy powder (I like using Gravox Brown Onion gravy)


  • Coat beef with corn flour and using a sauté pan with a little oil cook in batches, you just want to brown the beef slightly.
  • Place all ingredients in your slow cooker and cook for 6-8 hours on low or until beef is really tender.
  • When 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.
  • Take the bay leaves out of your slow cooker and then your dish is ready serve. I love mine served with a good mashed potato.


  • Even 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.

  1. Made this for dinner tonight and it was delicious. I didn’t use half a cup of corn flour to coat the meat and i used 2 onions and 3 carrots because we like onions and veggies in this house. Was a bit runny but i didn’t have any more corn flour to thicken it and didn’t want to put anymore gravy in it. Was a big hit and will be cooking it again and will probably make the pie version. 🙂

  2. I made this recipe for dinner and the only changes I made was adding double the amount of gravy powder (I didn’t bother mixing with water, just piped straight in and mixed) and I also added 2 extra tbs of sauce. Was very tasty and would definitely make again

    This will become a regular in our house very tasty and great as a casserole with the option of using the left overs to create a different meal and use for a pie filling. Love it!!

    We had this tonight for dinner, wow what flavours, this stew is so yummy, kids loved it to, I made dumplings and put them in for the last half hour. Huge hit and will defiantly have again. Thank you ?

  5. Tried this yesterday with rice. Absolutely delicious. Plenty for leftovers and eaten by everyone in the family of 4. Described by some as the best caserole they’ve ever eaten.

  6. cooked today and only change I made was no onion, in place I put canned tomatoes.. Very Happy indeed, even fussy missus said it was nice lol Cheers

    Absolutely beautiful. I did add a Tin of diced tomatoes. It was great to make a dish the Hubby raved about other than his obsession with lamb obsession ?. I will definitely make this again and Can’t wait to try the Beef and beer pies.
