Hobgoblin Stew

Hobgoblin ale stew Perfect for a Halloween supper using lots of veggies, some beef pieces and a bottle of Hobgoblin Ale.
Warming, tasty and done in the slow cooker so its smell was wafting through the house all afternoon whilst it was grim and rainy outside.

Hobgoblin Ale on the Halloween menu
I do love a slow cooker meal as it makes the house feel toasty warm and I can enjoy the afternoon whilst it cooks and there's usually lots of leftovers for lunch the next day of freezing batches of. 
Happy Halloween

Sounds perfect although the Hobgoblin ale would be lucky to make it - one of my favourites! Jane x
