11.  Add the other cup of Guinness, and add the beef stock.

12.  Cook on low for 3.5 - 4 hours.

13.  At around the 2 hour mark, if you are finding that you want a thicker gravy, remove approx. 1 cup of juices from the slow cooker with a baster and into a mug or bowl.

14.  Add 1-2 tablespoons of corn starch to the gravy, as well as ¼ cup of cold water.

15.  Whisk vigorously until the corn starch has dissolved.

16.  Add it back to the slow cooker and stir.


18.  Quarter the peeled potatoes and place them in a pot of water.

19.  Bring to a boil and allow to boil for approx. 20 minutes or until the potatoes soften enough to break apart with a knife. (If you can stick a knife through the potato and it slides off when you lift, they are ready).

20.  Drain the potatoes; make sure you get rid of any excess water.

21.  Mash the potatoes slightly.

22.  Add butter, milk and horseradish.

23.  Continue to mash or whip with a hand mixer until you get the consistency you want.
