Serves: 6 servings


  • Full carrots (5)
  • Celery (1 stock)
  • Baby potatoes (13)
  • White onion (1)
  • Beer of choice (1 12 oz. bottle)
  • Olive Oil
  • Chuck beef
  • Flour
  • Italian Herbs
  • Salt & Pepper
  • Smoked paprica
  • 1 can tomato paste
  • Fresh garlic (3 cloves)
  • Bay Leaves
  • 1 can beef stock



  1. Chop your beef into small squares/chunks & season with salt, pepper and smoked paprika. Coat with flower after meat is fully seasoned
  2. Heat your stovetop to medium and coat the bottom of your sauce pan with olive oil. Add your chopped beef to the pan and cook until beef has a light brown color
  3. While your beef is cooking, chop your carrots, celery, onions and baby potatoes into 3/4 wide pieces to ensure that they cook evenly
  4. Mince your garlic and add that + the veggies to the pot with the beef and let cook for about 5 minutes
  5. Add the entire 12oz bottle of beer to your pan to deglaze and let the mixture simmer for another 3-4 minutes
  6. While your pan is simmering, add 4 bay leaves, Italian herbs and a pinch of salt & pepper to taste and stir.
  7. Add 3 tbsp of tomato paste to the mixture and stir
  8. Add beef stock until beef and veggies are fully covered and lower your stove temp to low
  9. Cook your stew mixture slightly covered w/ the lid tilted to allow for stew to breathe (if using a crock pot- you should be fine to fully cover) for abut 2 hours or until beef is tender.
  10. Once beef is tender (test using a fork) turn your temp to high for about 15 mins to thicken your stew.
  11. Once stew is nice and thick – serve with your choice of rice, mashed potatoes, garlic bread or just eat it as is! Enjoy!
