Slow-Cooker Irish Beef Stew
tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
lbs beef stew meat, cut into 1-inch cubes
cup all-purpose flour
teaspoon ground black pepper
tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
tablespoon Dijon mustard
teaspoons minced garlic
teaspoon dried rosemary
carrots, peeled and sliced
medium potatoes, peeled and cubed into bite-sized pieces
cups Progresso™ beef-flavored or chicken broth
cups (12 oz) dark beer (or substitute additional broth)
Begin by gathering your ingredients.
Heat half of the olive oil in a large, deep skillet over medium high. Place meat in a large bowl and sprinkle with the flour, salt and pepper. Toss to coat.
Place half of the meat in the skillet and brown, not disturbing the meat too often, turning and continuing to cook until most sides are brown. Set the first batch aside to a plate.
Heat the remaining olive oil in the skillet, brown the rest of the meat, then transfer both batches to a 6-quart or larger slow cooker.
In a small bowl, stir together the Worcestershire, mustard, garlic, rosemary, and thyme. Drizzle over the beef. Add the carrots, potatoes, celery, and onions to the slow cooker, then pour the broth and beer over the top. Cover and cook on Low for 10 to 12 hours or High for 4 to 6 hours.
