Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Trim fat from meat. Cut meat into 3/4-inch pieces. Lightly coat large skillet with cooking spray; heat over medium-high heat. Add meat; cook and stir until meat is brown. Set aside.

  • In a 5- to 6-quart slow cooker, combine sweet potato, parsnip, apple, onion (see Tip). Add meat. Whisk together broth, brown sugar, mustard, thyme, garlic and crushed red pepper. Pour over meat along with the beer.

  • Cover and cook on low-heat setting for 7 to 8 hours or on high-heat setting for 3 1/2 to 4 hours. Stir in tomato.


Tip: For Easy Cleanup: Line your slow cooker with a disposable slow cooker liner. Add ingredients as directed in recipe. Once your dish is finished cooking, spoon the food out of your slow cooker and simply dispose of the liner. Do not lift or transport the disposable liner with food inside.
