Slow Cooked Beef Casserole with Mash Recipe

Want dinner in a hurry but don’t have time to make it? The slow-cooker is ideal for those colder, busy days. Simply make everything before you go out in the morning, and hey presto, dinner’s ready when you get home.

Cook time: 4 hours. Serves: 4

Recipe Ingredients

    • 3 red onions, sliced
    • 1 clove garlic
    • 750g diced beef
    • 1 bay leaf
    • Sprig of rosemary
    • 1 cup beer
    • 1 cup beef stock
    • 2 tablespoons cornflour
    • 1 tablespoon wholegrain mustard
    • ½ cup BBQ sauce
    • 4 medium Agria potatoes, peeled and diced
    • 1 clove garlic
    • ¼ cup milk
    • ½ cup grated cheese
    • Salt and Pepper

Cooking Method

  • Arrange the onions and garlic in the base of a slow cooker, and add the beef and herbs.
  • Whisk together the beer, beef stock, cornflour, mustard and BBQ sauce.
  • Pour the beer mix over the beef and cook on high for 2 hours (leave slow cooker on ‘auto’ if leaving all day).
  • Stir and cook for a further 2 hours or until tender and saucy. Don’t worry if you go over – just make sure you have enough liquid in the slow cooker.

For the garlic & cheese mash:

  • Cook the potatoes and garlic in boiling water until tender. Drain the potatoes and mash with the milk and cheese and season to taste.
  • Serve the beef on the mash and garnish with herbs and cracked pepper and fresh seasonal greens.
