"This is such a warm and hearty stew for winter! Use a bitter, dark beer for best results. I like to serve with a spoonful of my Kale Mashed Potatoes added to the bowl."

Step by Step Method

Step 1

Sprinkle the beef with salt and pepper. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add 1 tablespoon olive oil to the pan, and swirl to coat. Add beef to the pan, and cook for 3 minutes, browning on all sides. Remove beef from the pan.

Step 2

Add the remaining 2 teaspoons oil to the pan, and swirl to coat. Add chopped onion and thyme sprigs; saute for 4 minutes. Add tomato paste and minced garlic; saute 1 minute. Add beer; cook for 1 minute, scraping pan to loosen the browned bits.

Step 3

Coat a slow cooker with cooking spray. Add the beef, onion, thyme sprigs, tomato paste, garlic and beer to the slow cooker. Cook on low heat for 3 1/2 hours. Add carrots. Cook for an additional 30 minutes. Add mushrooms. Cook an additional hour.

Step 4

Combine the beef stock, soy sauce and flour in a small bowl; combine with a whisk. Add to the slow cooker and cook for 30 more minutes or until thickened. Discard thyme before serving.

We loved this stew. The stout beer added some great flavor. We didn't have any thyme sprigs.

Very hearty with a rich flavor from the stout. I made one change. Had some little potatoes I needed to use, so halved them and added with the carrots. Served with a crusty bread.
