Description

A very simple, very hearty beef stew. Serve with crusty French bread…and bring an appetite!

Ingredients

  • 3 Tablespoons Olive Oil
  • 1 Tablespoon Butter
  • 2 pounds Stew Meat
  • 1 whole Medium Onion, Diced
  • 3 cloves Garlic, Minced
  • 1 can (12 Oz. Size) Beer
  • 4 cups Beef Stock (or 4 Cups Water + 4 Beef Bouillon Cubes)
  • 2 cups Water (additional, If Needed)
  • 1 Tablespoon Worcestershire Sauce
  • 2 Tablespoons Tomato Paste
  • ½ teaspoons Paprika
  • ½ teaspoons Kosher Salt
  • Freshly Ground Black Pepper
  • 1-½ teaspoon Sugar
  • 4 whole Carrots, Washed, Unpeeled, And Roughly Sliced
  • 4 whole New Potatoes, Quartered
  • Minced Parsley (optional)

Preparation

Heat oil and butter in a large pot over medium-high heat. Brown meat in two batches, setting aside on a plate when brown. Cut pieces in half. Set aside.

Add diced onions to the pot. Stir and cook for two or three minutes until softened, then add garlic for another minute. Pour in beer and beef stock, then add Worcestershire, tomato paste, paprika, salt, pepper, and sugar. Add beef back into the pot. Stir to combine. Cover and simmer for 1 1/2 to 2 hours.

*UPDATE: The liquid should cook down to a thicker state. If it gets too thick/reduces too much, add additional water as needed.

Add carrots and potatoes, then cover and cook for an additional 30 minutes. (If stew gets dry, just add a cup of hot water at a time to replenish the liquid.) Taste and adjust seasonings as needed.

Serve in bowls next to crusty French bread. Sprinkle with minced parsley, if desired.

To all my non-alcoholic cooks, don’t be afraid of this. I will admit tho, it took 30 min on the phone with my brother to find the micro brew that he thought would be fitting. He did well as this stew was a smash homerun at our house! LOVE IT!! I would say if your making for more than four adults do double! I love Ree and and all her love she puts not only into cooking for her family and us, but the love of her family and friends as well!! A dedicated fan!!! Jenn

Excellent recipe! But, I made a few adjustments after reading the reviews: I floured and seasoned the beef before I browned it, reduced the amount of water I added to the pot and added a bay leaf too. I served it over egg noodles with French bread. DELICIOUS!

Very good, especially the second day. First day I served with mashed potatoes, the second day I served this over dittalini pasta and it was better.
