Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Place a large saucepan that is also able to go in the oven (Dutch oven) on medium-high heat. Add the olive oil or butter. Add the beef and brown the meat. Season with sea salt and pepper. Remove from the pan and set aside.
  3. Add the onion and stir until it is cooked and lightly browned.
  4. Add the flour and stir. Pour in the beer and bring to a boil to cook off the alcohol.
  5. Allow the beer to deglaze the pan.
  6. Add the broth, bay leaf, thyme beef, carrots, and celery to the pan.
  7. Cover with a lid and bake for 2 hours.
  8. Add the potatoes and continue to cook until the potatoes are soft.

  10. Add the parsley. Scoop into bowls and serve.
