  • 1 lb Butcher Box.ca 100% grass fed, grass finished stew beef
  • 2 large potatoes, cut in chunks
  • 1 stalk celery, sliced
  • 1 small onion, sliced
  • ½ cup sliced mushrooms
  • 1 tsp fresh thyme -or- ½ tsp dehydrated
  • 1 chicken stock cube
  • 1 large garlic clove, crushed
  • 1 can (12 oz) beer or ale
  • ½ cup cream or evaporated milk
  • 1½ cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 2 tbspolive oil
  • Seasoned flour - 1/4 cup flour, 1/2 tsp salt, pinch black pepper


Step 1

Heat 1 tbs of the oil in a heavy skillet over medium heat. Mix the seasoned flour ingredients and place mixture in a plastic bag. Place the cubed meat in the bag and shake until meat is coated.

Step 2

Place meat in hot skillet, shaking off any excess flour. Brown meat on all sides. Place browned meat in the slow cooker.

Step 3

Return skillet to heat and add the remaining 1 tbs of oil. Saute the onions, mushrooms, garlic and celery until almost tender. Place vegetable mixture in slow cooker. Add the potato chunks to the slow cooker.

Step 4

Pour the can of beer over the beef/vegetable mixture. Add stock cube & thyme.

Step 5

Cover and cook on HI for 5-6 hours or LOW for 8-10 hours (I recommend cooking on HI as meat didn't break apart).

Step 6

Turn off cooker and add cream. Stir well. Add cheese and stir again. Replace cover and let sit for about 10 minutes. Stir again and serve.

Step 7

Makes about 4 servings.
