• 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 3 bay leaves
  • 2 lbs stew meat, cut into 1 1/2 - 2 inch cubes
  • 1 large yellow onion, peeled and cut into 1/4 inch slices
  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled and chopped
  • 1 tsp dried thyme, whole
  • 1 tsp dried rosemary
  • 2 -3 tsp all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup beef stock
  • 1/2 cup Guiness Stout
  • 1 Tbsp chopped parley
  • 1/2 lb carrots, sliced
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste


Heat a 6-quart stove-top casserole and add the oil and the bay leaves. Cook the bay leaves for a moment and then add the meat. Brown the meat on both sides on high heat. Add the sliced onion and cook for a few minutes until it is clear. Reduce the heat to low and add the garlic, thyme, rosemary, and flours, and stir well until smooth.

Add the beef stock and stout; simmer, stirring, until the stew thickens a bit. Add the remaining ingredients and cover. Place the pot in a 275 F degree oven for about 2 hours, stirring a couple times. Check for salt and pepper before serving.
