|Crockpot Beef & Sweet Potato Stew|
The secret ingredients here are beer and coconut milk. What a yummy combination! You won't believe it 'til you try it.
Crockpot Beef & Sweet Potato Stew
2 lbs ground beef
2 sweet potatoes, cut in 1" chunks
1 onion, diced
1 1/2 cups chicken broth
1 bottle beer (optional - see below)
1 can coconut milk
1/3 cup date sugar
1 bunch green onions, chopped
Brown the ground beef in a medium frying pan on the stove over medium heat, then transfer to the crockpot. In the same pan, soften the onion for about 3 - 5 minutes, then transfer that to the crockpot.
Add the broth, beer and sweet potatoes, and start cooking on low for 6 hours. (Or, you can reserve the sweet potatoes and add them after 3 hours. Your choice.)
30 minutes before the end of your cooking time, add the coconut milk, sugar and green onions. Serve warm, or tastes great the second day.
(Note: This can be made without the beer - just add a bit more chicken broth instead. Or, here are ten gluten-free beers to try.)
