  1. Heat oil in a Dutch oven or large pot over medium-high heat. Coat beef cubes with flour, shaking off the excess. Fry beef cubes until browned on all sides. Remove from the pot. Add the onion, mushrooms, and garlic to the pot, and cook stirring constantly until onion is tender, about 3 minutes.
  2. Return beef to the pot, and stir in tomato paste, beef broth, and beer. Add potatoes and carrots, cover, and simmer over low heat for about 1 hour. Mix together the cornstarch and cold water. Stir into the stew, and simmer until thickened. Sprinkle with parsley and serve.

very good. my only complaint is I followed the recipe but it never said when to add the garlic? I ended up adding it at the end when I found it was the only ingredient left. It probably needed t...

This was a great beef stew, I love the deep flavor the beer gives to it (I used Guinness). I'm not a big fan of tomato flavor in my stew so I left out the tomato paste. Also left out the mushroo...

I thought this stew was way too tomato-ey. It just tasted like bitter tomatoes. It would've been better with just beef broth and the beer. We threw the leftovers away

This was a hit in my house. I did add a spoon of sugar to take away some bitterness. Good!
