Ingredients

  • 2 lbs chuck roast, cubed
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 large carrots, chopped into 1-inch pieces
  • 2 parsnips, chopped into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 white onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 lb new potatoes, halved
  • 1 can (14.5 oz) Muir Glen™ Organic Diced Tomatoes Fire Roasted
  • 2 bottles (11.2 oz each) Guinness™ Extra Stout
  • 1 cup Progresso™ beef-flavored broth
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 3-4 sprigs fresh thyme
  • Salt and pepper
  • Sour cream, for garnish
  • Chopped scallions, for garnish

Steps

  • 1
    Cut chuck roast into 1-inch cubes and try to remove any large pieces of fat. Toss cubed beef in flour and season with a pinch of salt and pepper.
  • 2
    Heat olive oil in a large sturdy pot over medium heat. Once the oil is shimmering, add the beef and cook for 6-8 minutes until seared on all sides.
  • 3
    Add carrots, parsnips, onions, garlic and new potatoes to pan and stir all ingredients together. Let cook for a few minutes to combine flavors.
  • 4
    Add tomatoes, Guinness™, beef broth, brown sugar and chili powder and bring to a slight simmer.
  • 5
    Turn heat down to low and simmer, partially covered, for at least an hour (but up to 2 hours) until beef is very tender.
  • 6
    Season with salt and pepper to taste and serve garnished with sour cream and scallions.

Expert Tips

  • This can easily be made in a slow cooker by browning the beef in a skillet and then transferring the beef along with all other ingredients to a slow cooker. Cook on low for 6-8 hours.

More About This Recipe

  • A classic and simple beef stew simmered in Stout beer. When I think of comfort food at its best, I think of a good beef stew. A good stew will take humble ingredients and make them better than their parts. The steps are easy, but it does need to simmer for a while to make the beef nice and tender. It’s not a recipe to rush! Simmering the ingredients in Guinness™ adds a real complexity to the finished stew. It’ll have flavors of coffee and chocolate, but not in an overpowering way. It’s a guaranteed dinnertime winner, especially in colder months. When you’re ready to serve, top with sour cream and chopped fresh scallions. Enjoy!
