This stew is a stick to your ribs kind of dish. With whole new potatoes, big chunks of carrot, slices of beef, and a beer based broth.
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.
