While this dish is not made in the slowcooker it could easily be converted into one. In that case cooking it for about 6-8 hrs should do the trick
Half a medium sized pumpkin
200grround carrots or another vegetable you like
1bottle of Stout or another dark beer
1pcs of mace
sugar to taste
Serve with mashed potatoes or rice (we picked the mashed potatoes)
Cut the beef in chunks of about 2 cm and put pepper and salt on them. Put the butter in a casserole pan and once the butter stops foaming add the meat. Bake the meat for about 10 minutes on medium high till it is browned.
Cut up 3 onions in rough pieces and add them to the meat. Bake for another 5 minutes. Add the bottle of beer.
Stick the cloves into the remaining onion (you can leave it whole, it will fall apart anyway) and add this together with the mace, bayleave and cinnamon stick to the meat. Bring to a boil, add pepper and salt and sugar to taste. You don't want it to be overly sweet. Put a lid on the pan and simmer for approx. 2 hours. Add the carrots in and simmer for another half hour before you add the pumpkin. Simmer for another half hour and check if the meat is fall apart tender and the pumpkin well done.
You can add potatoes to the mix together with the pumpkin and have a one pot meal or you can make mashed potatoes and serve those on the site. Sprinkle some freshly grated nutmeg over the mashed potatoes!
You can easily make this dish the day before as the flavors will only get better after a day.
