Irish Braised Beef Stew

Irish Braised Beef Stew


1 boneless beef arm or chuck roast (about 3 pounds)
1 tablespoon Dierbergs vegetable oil
2 tablespoons Dierbergs flour
1 cup coarsely chopped onion
1 cup coarsely chopped carrot
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 bottle (12 ounces) dark beer
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
2 bay leaves
1 teaspoon dried thyme
1 teaspoon salt
Freshly ground black pepper
Hot mashed potatoes


Cut meat into ½-inch cubes, discarding as much visible fat as possible. In ovenproof Dutch oven, heat oil over medium-high heat; cook beef in batches until well browned on all sides. Sprinkle flour over meat; toss until well coated. Stir in remaining ingredients; bring to a boil. Cover and bake in 325°F. oven 45 minutes. Uncover, stir, and continue cooking until meat is fork-tender and liquid is reduced by half, about 45 minutes. Remove and discard bay leaves. Serve over mashed potatoes.
