Description

A beef stew chockfull of beef, beer and root vegetables!

Ingredients

  • 2 pounds To 2-1/2 Pounds Beef Chuck Roast, Cut Into 1-1/2 Inch Pieces
  • 1-¼ teaspoon Kosher Salt, Divided
  • ¼ cups All-purpose Flour
  • 3 Tablespoons Olive Oil
  • 4 cups Yellow Onion, Diced
  • 1-½ Tablespoon Tomato Paste
  • 1 bottle (11 Oz. Size) Irish Stout Beer (Killian's Or Guinness)
  • 4 cups Beef Broth
  • ¾ teaspoons Caraway Seeds
  • ½ teaspoons Black Pepper
  • 2 Tablespoons Golden Raisins
  • 3 whole Carrots, Peeled And Diagonally Sliced 1/2 Inch Thick
  • 2 whole Parsnips, Peeled And Diagonally Sliced 1/2 Inch Thick
  • 1 whole Medium Turnip, Peeled And Cubed Into Bite Size Pieces
  • 2 Tablespoons Minced Fresh Parsley Leaves, For Garnish

Preparation

Toss the cubed beef chuck roast with 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt and the flour until the beef is lightly coated.

Heat a large Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Once hot, pour in 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Sear a third of the beef until a deep golden crust forms. Remove and repeat with the remaining beef and oil in two more batches. Transfer all the beef into a clean platter and set off to the side.

Place the diced onion into the Dutch oven and cook for 5-8 minutes until soft and translucent. Add in the tomato paste and cook for 1 minute.

Pour in the bottle of Irish stout beer and scrape up the browned bits on the bottom of the pot. Pour in the 32 ounces {4 cups} beef broth and add the beef back in. Season with the remaining 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt, the caraway seeds, black pepper and the golden raisins. Stir and bring to a boil, reduce the heat to a simmer, cover and cook for 50 minutes.

Remove the lid, stir and bring back to a boil for 45 minutes.

When the time is up, add in the prepared veggies and cook with the lid off for 25 minutes or until the vegetables are fork tender.

Serve in a big bowl with minced parsley sprinkled over top and a slice of crusty bread. Enjoy!

Update on my rating for this dish:

We loved this, but the prep and cook times are WAY off. It took me more like 40 minutes to prep (and I saved cutting the root veggies until the pot was on its first 45 minute simmer), and cook time is more like 3 hours between browning, onion sautéing, bringing up to a boil, etc. (Even just adding up the times gives more than 2 hours of cooking time.) I wish I had made a note of that last time I made it.

THAT SAID, this recipe is AMAZING. Very worth the effort and time it takes to cook. Sharing this on Social Media because it’s so good.

I made this for an early St. Patrick’s Day dinner, and while it took a long time to finish, it was well worth the wait! I used Guinness Draft for the beer, and it was delicious and rich. This will be an annual tradition from now on!
