  1. Preheat oven to 275 degrees F (135 degrees C).
  2. Heat olive oil and bay leaves in a 6-quart oven-proof pot over high heat. Place 1/4 cup flour in a shallow bowl, press beef cubes into flour, and sear beef in the hot oil until the meat has a browned crust, about 3 minutes per side. Cook and stir onions with beef until onions are translucent, 5 more minutes. Reduce heat to low.
  3. Combine garlic, thyme, and rosemary leaves with 2 tablespoons flour in a small bowl; stir flour mixture into beef and onions until thoroughly combined. Pour beer and beef stock into mixture, stir to combine, and bring to a simmer. Cook, stirring often, until thickened, about 5 minutes. Mix potatoes, carrots, and parsley into beef and sauce; cover pot.
  4. Braise stew in the preheated oven until potatoes are cooked through and beef is tender, about 3 hours; stir occasionally. Season with salt and black pepper.

We really enjoyed this. I made this with sirloin as it was cheaper than stewing beef. I also left out the potatoes and cabbage, personal preference, and added a package of petite gourmet mushroo...

Made for Recipe Group. A good basic beef stew with bonus-Beer! Gives it a good flavor. I like that it preps on stovetop, then goes into the oven. Thanks for the recipe!

made for recipe group 1/21/15: First of all, the flavor was really good and it was easy to prepare so I would make it again. However, the bay leaf burned in the pan before I could add the beef. ...

Recipe Group. Pros...no tomato products or canned or packaged soups. Easily cooked in the oven with no chance of burning in my overly hot slow cooker. Meat and veg perfectly done in 3 hrs. C...

Overall, this was pretty yummy. I had to make a few small changes... I added a little more garlic than the recipe called for because we are garlic lovers in this house. Also, I did add the bay...
