- 4 lbs boneless beef roast, trimmed cut into 1 1/2 inch pieces (go for the chuck eye)
- kosher salt & freshly ground black pepper, to taste
- 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 2 yellow onions, 1 inch dice
- 1 tablespoon salt
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 teaspoon fresh thyme, minced
- 1 tablespoon tomato paste
- 1⁄4 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 tablespoon fresh thyme leave
- 3 cups chicken stock
- 12 ounces beer, divided (Guinness Draught)
- 1 1⁄2 lbs yukon gold potatoes, peeled 1 inch chop
- 1 lb carrot, peeled 1 inch chop
- 1 lb turnip, peeled 1 inch chop
- 1 lb celery, washed 1 inch chop
- 2 tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped
- Adjust an oven rack to the lower-middle position and preheat to 325 degrees F.
- Season the beef with salt and freshly ground pepper.
- Heat the oil in a Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add the onions and salt and cook, stirring occasionally, until well browned (8 to 10 minutes).
- Add garlic and minced thyme and cook for 2 minutes. Add the beef and brown slightly.
- Whisk in tomato paste, chicken stock, 3/4 cup of the Guinness and the fresh thyme leaves making sure to scrape up any browned bits on the bottom of the pot.
- Bring to a simmer and cook until slightly thickened (3 minutes). Transfer the pot to the oven and cook, uncovered, for 90 minutes. You will need to give it a quick stir halfway through cooking.
- Stir in the potatoes, turnip, celery and carrots. Continue cooking until the beef and vegetables are tender (1 hour). Halfway through cooking give it another quick stir.
- Remove the pot from the oven and stir in the remaining 1/2 cup of Guinness and the parsley.
- Season with salt and pepper to taste and serve.
