Beef Stew With Brown Beer and Thyme

Beef Stew With Brown Beer and Thyme

It’s just been a month that I have had my slowcooker, but I am absolutely obsessed with it. It’s soo easy and so delicious, especcially now in the winter, the perfect time for a nice dark stew.

15m prepare +  6h in slowcooker       serves 4


  • 500g diced beef
  • salt and pepper
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 2 onions
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 100g sundried tomatoes
  • 3 tablespoons sundried tomato oil
  • a bunch of fresh thyme
  • 250ml dark beer
  • 500ml beef stock
  • 2 parsnips
  • 100g mushrooms
  • 500g potatoes
  • 100ml milk
  • 30g butter
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • some more fresh thyme


  1. Cover the beef with a thin layer of flour and season with pepper and salt and put in the slowcooker.
  2. Cut all the the vegetables except for the potatoes in chunks and add everything to the slowcooker
  3. Add the beef stock, beer, tomato oil and a bunch of fresh thyme and turn it on for about 6 hours (2 on high and the rest on low)
  4. When your stew is nearly finished, start making your mashed potatoes. Add the milk and the butter and season with paprika powder, salt, pepper and some more fresh thyme.
