Step-by-Step

  1. Cut beef into 1/2 inch pieces.
  2. In a zip lock bag, put in the flour, and salt and pepper.
    Add the beef to bag, shaking to coat, you will probably have to do this a few times to get all the beef coated
  3. Heat vegtable oil on a large fry pan and saute the beef until browned, you might need to do this in two batches too
  4. Put a disposable liner in your slow cooker, and add the meat.
  5. To the fry pan that you browned your meat in, add the beer and simmer for a few minutes to get all the little crunchie things. That's where the love is. Pour this over meat.
  6. Cut carrots an potatoes into chunks, put in pot.
    Put onions in pot.
  7. Sprinkle the beef stew seasoning packet over.
  8. Pour gravy over, and give a stir.
  9. Cover and cook on low for 8 hours
  10. Half hour before you are ready to eat, add peas, cover and continue to cook. At serving time give a stir.
