Beef & Irish Stout Stew

RECIPE OVERVIEW

The Stout not only tenderises the beef but also adds a lovely malty flavour to the stew.

Preparation time: 20 minutes

Cooking time: 180 minutes

Ingredients

Serves: 4 people

  • 300 ml Beef Stock
    warmed
  • 150 g Carrots
  • 150 g Celery
  • 500 ml Guinness
  • 25 g Plain Flour
  • 30 g SuperValu Butter
  • 2 sprigs SuperValu Fresh Thyme
  • 2 cloves SuperValu Garlic
  • 675 g SuperValu Lean Beef
    cut into 1'' cubes
  • 2 tbsp SuperValu Olive Oil
  • 2 large SuperValu Onion
    sliced
  • 150 g SuperValu Parsnip
  • 0 - SuperValu Salt
    to season
  • 2 tsp SuperValu Tomato Purée
  • 2 tsp Worcestershire Sauce

Method

  1. Drizzle some olive oil into a pan over a medium heat and add a knob of butter.   Add the meat to the pan in batches and quickly brown, remove the meat from the pan and place in a casserole dish, season lightly.   Using the same pan add the remaining butter then add the onion, garlic, carrots, celery , parsnip and thyme and cook for 3 – 5 minutes.  Season well.
  2. Sprinkle the flour over the vegetables then add the tomato purée, cook for a further 4 - 5 minutes. Pour in the stout and warmed beef stock and a few drops of Worcestershire sauce. Pour the pan contents into the casserole dish and cover with a tight fitting lid and place in a preheated oven at 150F/300F/Gas Mark 2 for 2 -3 hours, checking occasionally to ensure there is enough liquid in the dish.
  3. Once cooked remove from the oven and check the consistency of the cooking juice. If too thick add a little extra beef stock, if too thin, let reduce down for a few minutes extra until a nice gravy like consistency is achieved.  Serve immediately on it’s own or with some mashed potatoes if desired.
