Wet and windy days like today are perfect for getting your slow cooker out, or putting a stew in a casserole dish and into your oven, to cook slowly and produce a tasty home cooked meal. A meal that not only warms you up, but fills you up too. This Slow Cooker Beef in Ale Stew is very easy to make. Slow cooking the beef makes it tender. It also makes for a very tasty meal, due to the flavoursome gravy it cooks in.
With autumn in full swing now, and the nights drawing in dark thanks to the clocks going back this weekend, it is definitely slow cooker/crockpot time and there is nothing better than leaving something cooking away while you go about your daily routine, and then have it ready to eat when it is meal time. One way of saving time, is to cook a Slow Cooker Butternut Squash in your crock pot and then use it in meal for your family.
