Guinness Beef Stew

With St. Patrick's Day this week, I knew I couldn't go wrong with this beef stew. It has a bottle of Guinness in it!! This recipe was from http://closetcooking.blogspot.com/2008/03/irish-lamb-stew.html but I used beef instead of the lamb.

Guinness Beef Stew
1 tsp extra virgin olive oil
1 lb beef for stew
1 sweet onion, finely chopped
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
2 tbsp flour
salt and pepper
1 bottle Guinness beer
14 oz can beef broth
1 bay leaf
1 tsp rosemary
1 tsp thyme
6 redskin potatoes
4 carrots

Heat the oil in a large Dutch oven.
Add the beef and brown on each side.
Add onions and cook until tender (about 5 minutes).
Add garlic and cook for 1 minute.
Add flour and let the mixture cook for 1 minute.
Add Guinness, beef broth, rosemary, thyme, bay leaf, salt, and pepper.
Bring to a boil, cover and reduce the heat to simmer for 1 & 1/2 hours.
Dice potatoes and carrots and add to the pot.
Bring to a boil, and cook for 30 minutes.
