Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons avocado oil (or other high-heat oil, including grapeseed and canola)
  • 2 pounds stew beef (your choice, including chuck or round)
  • 3 onions (peeled and chopped)
  • 3 carrots (peeled and chopped)
  • 2 celery stalks (chopped)
  • 2 cups beef stock
  • 1 tablespoon fresh ginger (peeled and grated)
  • 1 orange (zest only)
  • 12 ounces Guinness Stout (or other stout, including gluten free)
  • 4 potatoes (peeled and cut into bite-sized pieces)
  • salt
  • pepper

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 300°
  • In an ovenproof stockpot over a medium-high heat, add one tablespoon of the oil, and approximately 1/3 of the beef. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Brown the beef on all sides, and remove from pan. Repeat this for all of the beef, and set aside
  • Add the onions, carrot, and celery to the stockpot, and reduce the heat to medium. Sautee for 10 minutes, or until the vegetables have started to cook through
  • Add approximately ¼ cup of stock to the pan, and with a wooden spoon, scrape up any bits stuck to the pan. Add the beef, ginger, and orange zest. Add the remaining beef stock, and bring to a simmer
  • Add the Guinness (or other beer), cover, and place in the oven for 90 minutes. Do not bring to a simmer before placing in the oven (see note below)
  • After 90 minutes, add the potatoes if the beef is tender and cooked through. If the beef isn’t cooked, then check it every 15 minutes. Return the stockpot to the oven
  • Remove from the oven after the potatoes are cooked though, approximately 15-20 minutes
  • Adjust seasoning with salt and pepper

Notes

NOTE: Don’t try to speed up the cooking time by cooking this on the stovetop. If it overheats while cooking after the stout is added, the stout can cause the flavor to turn bitter
