  • Place the vegetables, mushrooms, beer and 2 tablespoons (1oz) of the oil in the slow cooker

  • Add the meat, spoon over the tomato paste and tomato sauce
  • If you choose to use it, then add the herbs.
  • Season to taste and cook for 1 hour on HIGH.
  • Reduce the heat to LOW and add the remaining oil and flour.
