Simply The Best

This stew is simply wonderful. The beer flavor is mild allowing the beef to shine. The carrots and onion add sweetness. The potatoes ground it so to speak. If you have an afternoon to devote to making this your efforts will be awesomely rewarded.
Guinness Beef Stew
 
Ingredients
  • 4-lb boneless chuck
  • 3 T vegetable oil
  • 1 yellow onion
  • 1 sweet onion
  • 1 T tomato paste
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • ¼ C AP flour
  • 3 C chicken broth
  • 2 bottles Guinness Draught (11.2 ounce bottles)
  • 1-1/2 T packed dark brown sugar
  • 1 t minced fresh thyme
  • 1-1/2 lbs Yukon Gold potatoes
  • 1 lb carrots
  • 2 T minced fresh parsley
Instructions
  1. Set a rack to lower-middle of your oven and pre-heat to 325-degrees.
  2. Trim away any excess or hard fat, and cut into 1-1/2″ pieces.
  3. Sprinkle beef cubes with salt and pepper.
  4. Finely chop onions.
  5. Add 3 T vegetable oil in Dutch oven placed over medium-high burner.
  6. Sauté onions for 10 minutes until well-browned.
  7. Add tomato paste and use a garlic press to press the garlic directly into pan. Cook for 2 minutes until the mixture turns rust-colored.
  8. Add ¼ C flour and continue to cook for 1 minute.
  9. Use a whisk to incorporate chicken broth, ½ bottle Guinness (promptly consume the remaining half of bottle one), brown sugar, and minced thyme, then use the liquid to de-glaze the fond.
  10. Bring the mixture up to a simmer, then simmer for 3 minutes. Add beef cubes and bring back up to a simmer.
  11. Put the Dutch oven uncovered, into the pre-heated oven and cook for 2½ hours at 325-degrees stirring after both 45 minutes and 90 minutes (gently stir more like folding).
  12. Wash and peel carrots, and cut into segments.
  13. Wash the potatoes, but leave the potatoes unpeeled; cut them into pieces.
  14. After 2½ hours has elapsed, mix in potatoes and carrots. Continue to cook for 1 more hour, until the beef and vegetables become tender; stirring gently after 30 minutes.
  15. Add ½ bottle Guinness (Hey lookie there... a half a bottle of beer.) and minced parsley.
  16. Adjust salt and pepper according to your taste, and serve.
