Irish cooking is all about simple, bold flavours – and one of our very favourite St Patrick’s Day recipes is this six-ingredient beef and ale stew. With just five minutes of prep time (that’s right!) needed for this hearty main, all you have to do is throw everything into a slow cooker with our Beef and Ale Stew Recipe Mix in the morning, then return for a meal that’s all ready for you.
Slow-cooked beef is a staple in many St Patrick’s Day Recipes, so why not cook up a larger batch with our savoury recipe mix, packed with parsley and paprika for a rich and comforting flavour, and keep the celebrations going all week long?
Place onion, carrots and beef into your slow cooker pot.
Mix sachet contents with brown ale, water and tomato purée, and add to slow cooker pot. Stir through.
Cover and cook for up to 4 hours on HIGH or up to 8 hours on LOW, or until meat is tender and cooked through. (Keep covered during cooking. Slow Cookers vary. Directions based on a 3.5 litre Morphy Richards model.)
Remove lid, stir through and stand for 5 minutes before serving.
