The combination of flavors from the Guinness, caraway seed, and raisins come together perfectly to create a rich, complex base for this stew. A great alternative to corned beef on St. Patrick’s Day!
Place the flour in a pie plate or other shallow dish. Sprinkle half of the beef with 1/2 teaspoon salt and dredge it in the flour. Coat the bottom of a large Dutch oven with 2 tablespoons oil and place over medium-high heat. Add the flour-coated beef to pan. Cook and stir for a few minutes until nicely browned. Remove the beef to a plate with a slotted spoon. Repeat procedure with remaining 2 tablespoons oil and remaining beef.
Add chopped onion to pan and cook, stirring occasionally for about 5 minutes or until softened. Stir in the tomato paste and cook, stirring for a minute or two. Stir in the beef broth and beer.
Return the browned beef to the pan. Stir in remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt, raisins, caraway seeds, and pepper. Increase heat and bring to a boil. Once boiling, cover, reduce heat, and simmer for 1 hour, stirring occasionally.
Uncover and bring back up to a boil. Cook 50 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the vegetables (carrot, parsnip, and potatoes). Cover and simmer for 30 minutes over medium-low heat.
Uncover and bring to a boil. Cook for an additional 10 minutes, just until vegetables are tender. Garnish with finely chopped parsley.
