Prep: 40 minutes

Slow Cook: 6 hours

Serves: 8


  • 3 lbs cubed beef or lamb stewing meat (ie: from Cowberry Crossing Farm or Kiernan Farm)
  • 2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 6 cups peeled and cubed potatoes (Russet or Yukon Gold)
  • 4 cups peeled and cubed turnip
  • 3 cups peeled and sliced carrots
  • 2 cups coarsely chopped onions
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 ½ cups Guiness (or other stout beer)
  • 2 tsp dry thyme
  • 2 whole bay leaves, whole
  • ½ tsp ground black pepper5 cups beef stock
  • ½ cup minced parsley leaves
  • ¼ cup water (optional)*
  • 2 Tbsp flour (optional)*


Heat 1 Tbsp of oil in large skillet, browning cubed meat in single layer, in batches if necessary (approximately 3 min per side). Meanwhile place potatoes, turnip and carrots in slow cooker. When meat is browned, transfer it to slow cooker. Heat remaining 1 Tbsp remaining oil. With heat at medium add onions and ½ tsp salt and cook 8 minutes or until onions have browned. Stir in remaining salt, pepper, thyme, bay leaves and beer to the pan, simmer briefly, scraping with a wooden spoon to loosen any brown bits, then transfer all to slow cooker. Pour beef stock in, cover slow cooker and cook on low for 6 hours or until meat is fork tender. Add minced parsley before serving. For optional gravy consistency follow next step.

*(optional) Mix water and flour, add to crock pot and stir.

Turn crock pot to warm until ready to serve.
