Herbed Irish Beef Beer Stew
Beef and beer are man's best friend. So why not enjoy them both as one great dish? Cheers to this scrumptious stew. Your Irish eyes will definitely be smiling.
2 tbsp. olive oil
Heat a 6 quart stove top casserole or ovenproof pot 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 onion and cook for a few minutes until it is clear. Reduce the heat to “low” and add the garlic, thyme, rosemary and flour and stir 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 the oven at 275 degrees for about 2 hours, stirring a couple of times. Season with salt and pepper to taste before serving.
