I don’t care for beer as a beverage, but when it’s added to a recipe, especially a beef recipe, it adds wonderful flavor.


3 pounds stew beef (cubes)
1/3 cup flour
12 ounces dark beer
1 package dry brown gravy mix
1 clove garlic, minced


Place beef in bottom of slow cooker and sprinkle with flour. Stir to cover cubes. In a separate bowl, mix beer, gravy mix, and garlic. Pour on top of beef. Cover and cook on low for 7-8 hours.

My family enjoys this dish served with Basmati rice.
