Yolanda Johnson


2 Tbsp olive oil
1 & 1/2 lb beef stew meat (get the butcher to cut into bite-size pieces)
2 or 3 Tbsp plain flour
4 clove garlic (minced)
4 c beef stock
2 c Guinness + 1/2 cup of any red wine (I used a Merlot for this stew)
3 Tbsp tomato paste
1 Tbsp dried thyme
1 tsp sugar to sweeten tomato paste
1 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
2 bay leaves
salt and cracked black pepper
2 Tbsp butter
5 potatoes (peeled and cut into bite size pieces)
1 large onion (peeled and diced)
3 med carrots (scraped and diced)

1. In a small bowl add in the flour and a pinch of salt and pepper. Flour lightly the pieces of beef to seal in the flavour.
2. Heat olive oil in a large pot over medium heat. Brown the beef stew using tongs to turn the pieces over.
3. If you have too much liquid, carefully remove it to ensure the beef will brown. Add garlic and sauté for 1 minute.
4. Add beef stock.
5. Add Guinness.
6. Add wine.
7. Add tomato paste, sugar, and thyme.
