Open the slow cooker liner and place inside the slow cooker dish.
Ensure the liner covers the bottom and sides of the dish and pull the top of the liner over the rim of the dish.
Season the beef with pepper and salt. Then add to a large pan and cook with oil until browned evenly (2-3 minutes).
Place beef, carrots, peppers, onions, peas and garlic into the slow cooker.
Stir in beef broth, tomato paste, worcestershire sauce and bay leaves.
Put slow cooker lid on and cook for approximately 7-8 hours on a lower heat or 3-4 hours on a higher heat.
If you prefer the gravy of the stew to be thicker, whisk some flour and water together in a bowl and add it to the stew (cooking for an additional 30 minutes).
We recommend serving with rice or crusty bread 🙂
And guess what no slow cooker to clean afterwards as the Bakewell liner protects it from mess!
