Slow cooker beef stew with sweet potato and thyme

I serve this stew with mashed potato and green vegetables.





  1. Put the beef, bacon, carrots and mushrooms in the slow cooker.
  2. Using string, tie the thyme and the bay leaves together in a little bundle and add to the slow cooker along with all remaining ingredients except the sweet potato. Stir well and turn the cooker on high for 3 ½ hours.
  3. Add the sweet potato, stir well and cook for another hour. Serve.
