How to Make Brew Stewed Beef

To begin, slice up a chuck tip roast into slices about 1/3 inch thick. I used a roast that was about a pound and a half.


In your Dutch oven, heat 2 tablespoons of butter over medium high heat. Brown the meat on both sides, working in batches. Place the meat in a dish as you brown them.


Slice 2 red onions.


Add in another 2 tablespoons of butter, and sauté the onions until they are golden and tender.


Stir in 1/2 cup of flour, let it cook for a minute.


Pour in two 12 ounce bottles of “amber” beer, along with the browned meat, 3 cups of beef broth, 2 bay leaves, 1 tsp thyme, 1 tsp black pepper and 1/2 tsp salt. Bring this to a boil, then reduce the heat and let it simmer for an hour, with the lid on.


After the hour, trim and peel 4 or 5 carrots. Cut them into thirds, and split any very thick pieces.


Wash 2 lbs of “new” potatoes.


Put the carrots and potatoes in the pot, and let this cook covered for about another hour or until the veggies are cooked through.
