Beef, Bacon & Beer Casserole (GF & SC - Slow Cooker)

1 onion, peeled and diced
2 large carrots, diced
6 medium red skinned potatoes, diced
10 slices chopped pancetta or 6 slices bacon, diced (a quick fry would be great if you can be bothered)
600g-1kg diced beef (i used lean but a stewing type would be even better)
2 tspns beef or vegie stock concentrate or 2 stock cubes (gluten free)
2-3 tabs gluten free worcestershire sauce (we use Spring Gully)
approx 3 tabs honey
1 bottle of gluten free beer (we used O'Brien's Premium Lager *)
2 tabs cornflour (i added this later but you could also toss the beef cubes in it before cooking)
2 handfuls green beans, cut into 1" pieces
thyme and / or garlic

I used a 3L slow cooker, but if you use more meat you will need a bigger cooker

Place ingredients into the bowl in the order listed above.

I tend to use Auto which cooks on high for 4 hours then switches to low and cook for the rest of the day

* Geoff said it was an OK beer, he wouldn't choose to drink it but if had to be GF he would be happy to drink it.
