tablespoons all-purpose flour
large carrots, chopped into 1-inch pieces
parsnips, chopped into 1-inch pieces
lb new potatoes, halved
can (14.5 oz) Muir Glen™ Organic Diced Tomatoes Fire Roasted
bottles (11.2 oz each) Guinness™ Extra Stout
cup Progresso™ beef-flavored broth
tablespoons brown sugar
tablespoon chili powder
Chopped scallions, for garnish
Cut chuck roast into 1-inch cubes and try to remove any large pieces of fat. Toss cubed beef in flour and season with a pinch of salt and pepper.
Heat olive oil in a large sturdy pot over medium heat. Once the oil is shimmering, add the beef and cook for 6-8 minutes until seared on all sides.
Add carrots, parsnips, onions, garlic and new potatoes to pan and stir all ingredients together. Let cook for a few minutes to combine flavors.
Add tomatoes, Guinness™, beef broth, brown sugar and chili powder and bring to a slight simmer.
Turn heat down to low and simmer, partially covered, for at least an hour (but up to 2 hours) until beef is very tender.
Season with salt and pepper to taste and serve garnished with sour cream and scallions.
- This can easily be made in a slow cooker by browning the beef in a skillet and then transferring the beef along with all other ingredients to a slow cooker. Cook on low for 6-8 hours.
