You Gotta Make Dis!

Guinness Beef Stew

3 lbs Boneless Beef Chuck
2 tbsp butter
2 onions
4 cups chicken broth
1 3/4 cups Guinness Draught, Divided
1 tbsp lt brown sugar
1 tsp dried thyme
1 oz, weight bittersweet chocolate, chopped (take my word for it- sounds, weird, but so worth it!)
5 whole carrots, peeled and cut
1 lb potatoes, peeled and cut
1/4 cup flour
Cut beef into cubes, and season with salt and pepper. Melt butter in cast iron dutch oven. Brown beef over medium-high heat. Add broth, 1 1/2 cups Guinness (reserve remainder- refrain from drinking- especially if, like me, you are preparing this before you leave for church Sunday morning), brown sugar, thyme, and chocolate. Bring to boil. Add carrots, onions, and potatoes. Reduce heat to medium low, cover, and cook for at least two hours. In a small bowl, whisk flour and remaining 1/4 cup Guinness until smooth. Stir mixture into stew. Cover and cook for an additional 15 minutes on medium heat or until the sauce thickens. Season with salt and pepper (lots and lots and lots of fresh ground pepper!!!).
And, try not to slap yo momma!!!!!
In joy, troye
