How to make it

  • Heat the oil in a skillet over medium heat. Place beef stew meat and flour in a large ziplock bag, and shake to coat. Transfer coated meat to the skillet, and cook about 1 minute, until browned.
  • Mix the potatoes, celery, carrots, onion, and garlic in a slow cooker. Place browned beef over vegetables, and season with thyme and basil.
  • In a small bowl, beer, mix the chili sauce, and brown sugar, and pour over the meat in the slow cooker.
  • Cover slow cooker, and cook 8 hours on Low or 2 hours on High (keep in mind every crockpot cooks differently).

    I was looking for something easy and different compared to the stew I usually make each fall and choose yours. I usually don't use tomato products in beef stew. Turns out your stew was a big hit and I will certainly make more and for the freezer. Thank you!!

    Mornin Roger: This is not really standard stew. Standard stew is booooring and this will be interesting. I ran across a similar stew in Wagawaga, NSW, Aussie but no chili sauce and they used lamb. I reckon your recipe but with lean mutton will be a classic. Hope you don't mind the substitution.
