Beef & Ale Stew

Prep Time
5 Minutes
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?
