DIRECTIONS

  • Trim any excess fat off the beef and cut into 2" cubes.
  • Heat the oil and butter in a pan. I use a Dutch oven.
  • Season beef with salt & pepper. Add beef to hot pan and brown the beef.
  • Remove the beef from the pan, (I moved the beef to the outsides of the pan) throw in the garlic and onions and cook until softened, about 3 minutes.
  • Pour in the beer, 1/2 of beef broth, (I started with 1/2 the beef broth and added more when necessary, I only used 2 cups total)
  • Add Worcestershire sauce, tomato paste, sugar, paprika.
  • Return the beef to the pan, cover and simmer on a low heat until the meat is very tender, 1 1/2 to 2 hours. *This may take longer depending on how large your beef chunks are.
  • If the liquid level gets too low, add more broth as needed.
  • About 30-45 minutes before the beef is tender, add the carrots, potatoes, parsnips and turnips and continue to simmer until the vegetables are tender and the liquid is reduced, about 30 minutes.
  • If the stew is still too liquidy, remove a cup of cooking liquid from the pan and stir in the flour / Wondra. Add the flour mixture back into the pan and stir. Simmer for 10 minutes until the stew is thick. The meat should be very tender; if it's tough, let it continue to cook.
  • To finish, add the parsley and stir through the stew.
