I forget exactly how the idea for this came about, but it has become a favourite special winter meal around here, and tastes great over mashed potatoes. 



The recipe is based off of this one with some very obvious changes. 

Ingredients:

Note: The mix of vegetables and amounts vary every time I make it, use things in the quantities you will enjoy and base amounts on what will fit in your Crockpot or pot)
Sweet Onion
Celery
Garlic
White Mushrooms (a lot)
Portobello Mushrooms (3-4)
Carrots
Parsnips
Turnip
Sweet Potatos
Potatoes (a few for in the stew and more for mashing (ones for mashing are not in this photo))
Water (not pictured)



McCormicks All Vegetable Beef Bouillon (typically 2 cubes)
1 Large Can of Guinness (other beers might work but I dont drink the stuff so I cannot offer any advice in this area)
Thickener such as easy blend flour (pictured above) or Veloutine (pictured below... oops)
Salt (to taste)
Pepper (to taste)
Thyme (a few shakes...)
Rosemary (a few shakes)
Malt Vinegar (1Tbs) (not pictured because I forgot it...)

Directions:
Chop Onion and Celery and Fry in a bit of oil with minced garlic until softened.


Chop the rest of the veg into approximately cube-like pieces and put in crockpot.


Add onion mixture to crockpot and fill with water
Add Guinness and bouillon cubes and stir


Cook for 3-4 hours on High or 6-8 on Low




Add thickener to give the gravy base your desired consistency (like a thin-medium gravy)




Add Seasonings to taste and let cook a little bit longer.

As it is finishing make mashed potatoes


Serve Stew over Mashed potatoes with some nice Red Wine


Or milled up in a food mill with a side of avocado and crackers if you prefer

It's made by McCormick's (at least in Canada)  and looks like this.  They are fantastic, I use them to make gravy all the time.
