Great recipe, this was so nice to come home to on a really cold day. Beer gives it a great flavor and I loved how simple it was to put together. I added sauteed mushrooms at the end and served with sour cream for garnish. Yummy!!! Thanks for sharing this.

Yummy unique stew. I actually converted this to the stovetop and cooked it for about 2 1/2 hours on low heat. Really good flavor. I think that next time I would add some other veggies - carrots & potatoes would be excellent additions. I really enjoyed it with some grated cheddar on top - beer and cheddar are such a lovely combo! Thanks!

I followed this recipe to the letter and I did not like it at all. My boyfriend and kids didn't like it either. It was very bland and what lil flavor it did have was the beer (just regular old budweiser). It was an awkward taste. I can't imagine how I could tweek it to even be "ok". Unfortunately I can say I won't be making this again :(

A really amazingly easy, delicious winter crockpot recipe. Didnt add Cayene as I didnt have any but the flavour was still excellent, smell whilst it cooking makes your mouth water too!!! Sauce definately doesnt need thickening, Served this with steamed rice and it was a winner! Thanks for sharing.

Delicious! I made it with pork instead of beef and it was wonderful. This recipe will definitely become a staple in our home, even my picky kids loved it.

One word...AWESOME!!! We really did love this. Didn't have to add flour at the end because it was already pretty thick. Thank you so much for posting this!

This is a really good crockpot recipe! I made a flour paste at the end of cooking and served it w/ mashed potatoes and a green salad. The only beer I had on hand was a light beer and I think next time I'll try a darker beer because I think it'll add to the flavor. Thanks for the recipe.

This was a really good recipe since it was very simple to make and tasted great. I used stew meat and it turned out so nice and tender. I made the flour paste at the end and added, but i'm not sure if made much of a difference - there wasn't an issue with it not being thick enough.

This was good and easy to make. I love my crockpot and this was a nice meal to make in it. I followed the recipe exactly as written but I did not add the optional red pepper/cayenne pepper. I served it over noodles.
