To make this low(er) carb, you can substitute real mashed potatoes with my recipe for low-carb mashed instead. (That way you can eat MORE, LOL!)
- 5 lbs beef
- 1⁄2 cup soy flour
- salt and pepper
- 5 tablespoons suet (or oil)
- 3 onions
- 1 lb mushroom, chopped
- 2 (8 ounce) cans Guinness stout
- 2 cups beef stock
- 1 teaspoon brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon dried thyme
- 1 tablespoon fresh thyme
- 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- 4 bay leaves
- garlic clove
- 2 tablespoons tomato puree dissolved in 4 tbsp water
- 2 1⁄2 cups carrots
- 1 few potato (optional)
- Cube beef into about 1 inches squares.
- Toss meat in a bowl w/ 1Tbsp oil.
- Season meat w/ flour, salt and pepper.
- Heat rest of oil in pot and brown meat then remove.
- Add onions, tomato purree mixture and garlic to pot and cover.
- Cook 4 to 5 minutes then reintroduce meat to the pot and add everything else except the potatoes.
- Add a light sprinkle of salt and pepper and bring to a boil, then reduce.

- Best served with mashed potatoes but if you added the potatoes directly to the stew you will be fine.
