Slow Cooked Beef in Beer Casserole

A plate of dark brown beef stew on potato mash with baby carrots and green vegetable on a white plate and a small pot of dark sauce.
Slow Cooker Beef Casserole is a perfect family dinner. Dark beer gives a deep nut-like flavour to the beef. Hearty and warming to come home to. Ready in 4 hours, but there is no harm if you leave it on for longer.

  • 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 the 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.
  • Serve the beef casserole on soft mashed potatoes accompanied by fresh seasonal vegetables.
