Beef, beer and pumpkin stew

Sharing is caring!

A one pot warmer that’s perfect for autumn. Our beef, beer and pumpkin stew is packed full of delicious seasonal produce and simmered in the most delicious rich gravy.

I make this beef stew in the slow cooker because I like the laziness of it being ready for me to eat when I get home. You’ll just need some nice crusty bread alongside, or maybe a dumpling or two (cheat and use Aunt Bessie’s)

It’s worth saving the pumpkin seeds too so that you can make this delicious spicy seed snack.
