Thursday...I found a batch of frozen stew meat cubes and decided......
Ok...it's just basic beef stew but I add a bottle of Guinness at the beginning after the meat is seared. Adds GREAT flavor!
So we have onions, beef (from the FREEZER), flour, salt, Guinness, carrots, potatoes (I had TWO small ones!),peas (fron the FREEZER), beef stock, tomato paste and some thyme. Simmer a few hours on medium until it's reduced and thick and then chow down.
(this freezes great too....but I'm not even going there!)
