COOK TIME

A couple secret ingredients set this stew apart from other traditional beef stews. The honey adds a touch of sweetness and the beer not only tenderizes the meat but it adds a perfect richness to the sauce.

What You'll Need:
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2-1/2 to 3 pounds boneless beef chuck, cut into 1-inch chunks
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 3 carrots, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch slices
  • 2 large onions, cut into chunks
  • 2 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 (12-ounce) can beer
  • 1/2 cup beef broth
  • 1 tablespoon steak sauce
  • 2 teaspoons steak seasoning
  • 1 tablespoon honey
What To Do:
  1. In a large bowl, combine flour and beef chunks; toss until beef is completely coated.
     
  2. In a large soup pot, heat oil over medium-high heat and brown beef 4 to 5 minutes, stirring constantly.
     
  3. Add carrots, onions, and garlic, and cook 5 to 6 minutes, or until vegetables begin to soften. Stir in beer, beef broth, steak sauce, and steak seasoning and bring to a boil. 
     
  4. Reduce heat to low and simmer 1 hour, or until beef is tender. Remove from heat, stir in honey until well combined, and serve.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

My Gram did this also. How do you thicken the beef stew gravy without turning the gravy an un appetizing TAN color!??

the flour you coat the meat in is the thickener.

When I was growing up back in the 50's, no one ever heard of browning the meat first. Unless I was to young or didn't care. My gram made the most wonderful beef stew, on top of the stove in her big pot. Everything went in, potatoes, carrots, peas, onion. No garlic, no steak seasoning, no Worcestershire sauce and no tomatoes. It simmered low and slow and she used corn starch to thicken it and I do remember seeing Kitchen Bouquet, which I use as well. Everything today is fancy and time consuming. Everyone is worried about calories and nutritional value. My gram lived to be 98 and she lived without all that fancy stuff. She had her beer at nite along with her cigarette. I cook a lot like she does, very old school and my food is belly warming and full of delicious memories. I 4 starred this because I adjusted some things to suit me, and it was great.

Can this be made in a crockpot?

Yes, you can make this in a slow cooker. Cook on high for 4 hours, or low for 7-8 hours, or until meat is tender. Enjoy!

Apple cider is a good substitute for beer in any recipe.

For a special taste treat, rather than using just any old beer, try using Guinnes Draft in this recipe.

We're missing the point here. It's obvious that the solar system really does revolve around JimkKC222.

I suggest thart5 jimkKC222 find another website if he is concerned about Nutritional values. These recipes are just for our imformation. If after reading the ingredients it is our choose to make or not. Thank You

Is it possible to 'make' steak seasoning??? If so, please tell me what to mix...

Just look in the spices shelf of your local grocery store. You'll find all sorts of dry spice blends that are marketed as 'steak seasoning'.

Sounds good.

instead of beer simply add more beef broth to equal 11/2 cups or 1 or 2 beef bouillion cubes and 1 /12 cups of water The beer does give it a different taste

These comments are so funny! There are people who are intelligent enough to figure out simple (and these are simple recipes) recipes and people who get so angry about not getting info. about nutritional values (subscribe to "Cooking Light") . Cooking should not be that hard. If you can read , most cookbooks (or websites) will tell you how to make meals or whatever. Practice and experiment a little, you'll find it's really quite easy. Start with easy recipes,which they are on this website and work your way on up to recipes that have a few more ingredients. Don't be intimidated,it can be fun. Get your family involved,you might find you're eating healthier and saving money eating at home- without eating packaged food full of preservatives and chemicals which are unnecessary and unhealthy.Read, read, read, because Mr. Food has some (not all)very unhealthy recipes. Common sense prevails and many easy and healthy recipes are out there. (cookinglight.com)and some of Mr. Food's recipes are very good.

I have asked and TOLD you folks many times now to Please start listing the Nutritional information on your recipes, I suppose now you NEVER WILL!

would you please tell me what kind of "steak seasoning?"

Use any Kind, what difference does it make?

Thank you, everyone, for your comments. You were all correct that the beef should be coated with the flour. The instructions have been adjusted and are now correct.

common sense would tell you to coat the beef with the flour, or you haven't cooked too often. to the non-drinker, try O'Douls' no alcohol beer. some stores do sell single cans, or not you can probably get away without the beer. this sounds like an excellent stew, always looking for different variations, thanks.

I guess the cook forgot the flour?

do you have to use beer - it is hard to get just one can of beer when we are none drinkers.....would beef broth work ???

Yes, I'm sure you toss the meat with the flour before browning. It also will thicken up the liquids of the stew during cooking time. This sounds really good!

I think the stew meat is suppose to be coated with the flour before it is browned in the pan.

what do you do with the flour? no mention of it in instructions
