Beef Stew With Beer

Everything tastes better cooked in beer! 

INGREDIENTS

3 Pounds Beef For Stew

¼ Cup Olive Oil

3 Cups Sliced Onions

3 Cloves Crushed Garlic

2 Tablespoons Unbleached Flour

2 ¼ Cups Light Beer

2 ¼ Cups Dark Beer

2 Allspice Berries

1 Bay Leaf

¼ Teaspoon Thyme

3 Peppercorns

Place the olive oil in a heavy pot and heat until hot.  Make sure that the oil is not smoking.  Add the beef and brown all sides.  Remove the beef to a platter and set aside.  Add the onions and garlic to the pot and brown.  Stir occasionally.  Sprinkle the onions and garlic with the flour and cook for another 3 minutes.  Gradually add the beer and reduce the heat.  Cook slowly uncovered for 25 minutes.  Make an herb bundle by combining the allspice, bay leaf, thyme and peppercorns in a piece of cheesecloth.  Secure with kitchen twine. 

Add the beef back to the pot of cooking liquid.  Add the herb bundle and simmer, covered, for 1 hour.  Next uncover the pot and cook uncovered for another 30 minutes. When done remove the herb bundle.  Serve with a side of mashed potatoes.  Serves 6
