    About this recipe: Delicious tender beef cooked in the slow cooker with beer, shallots, bacon and mushrooms. The beer makes a lovely gravy without tasting overly strong of beer. This is quite a meaty dish so would also be nice with potatoes and carrots added. I serve this with crusty French bread to mop up the juices. Hearty and warming to come home to. Cooks in 5 hours in slow cooker, however it would not hurt it to be cooked all day.

    Ingredients
    Serves: 4 

    • oil as needed
    • 12 shallots, peeled and kept whole
    • 500g diced casserole beef
    • 1 tablespoon plain flour
    • 330ml bottled beer (Guinness, etc.)
    • 2 onions, sliced into half rings
    • 1 fat clove garlic, crushed
    • 4 slices streaky bacon, sliced into strips
    • 150g button mushrooms, cleaned and kept whole
    • salt and pepper

    Method
    Prep:10min  ›  Cook:5hr  ›  Ready in:5hr10min 

    1. Turn the slow cooker onto low. In a fry pan heat a little oil and add the shallots. Pan fry over medium to low heat for 5 minutes or until they colour well. Remove and add to the slow cooker. In the same fry pan add the beef. Cook until the meat is seared and has taken on some colour, about 5 minutes. Add the flour and mix well. It will appear a little 'gloopy' but that is okay. This will help thicken the gravy. Pour in the beer and bring to the boil. Now pour the beef and beer mixture into the slow cooker.
    2. Wipe out the fry pan and add a little oil. Add the onions and cook for a few minutes. Add the garlic and bacon and cook for another min. Add to the slow cooker.
    3. Add the mushrooms into the slow cooker and plenty of salt and pepper. Cover and leave until beef is tender, about 5 hours.
