Guinness Stew
Rose & Crown
United Kingdom - Epcot

Ingredients:
2 pounds sirloin cubes
1 ounce olive oil
1 each dry bay leaf
8 ounces diced onions
4 ounces diced carrots
½ ounce chopped garlic
2 teaspoons fresh thyme
2 teaspoons fresh rosemary
¼ teaspoon red chili flakes
8 ounces Guinness stout
1 quart beef broth

Method of Preparation:
•  Sear sirloin cubes in a large stock pot in a small amount of olive oil, add the bay leaf.

•  Once the meat has a good sear on it (browned), add the onions and carrots. Cook until the onions are translucent.

•  Add the garlic, thyme, rosemary, and chili flakes. Cook for one minute and add the Guinness.

•  Allow the Guinness to simmer for five minutes, then add the beef broth.

•  Simmer for 30 minutes. Liquid should reduce by at least 1/3.

•  Season with salt and pepper to your personal taste.

Cook's note: To thicken stew if wanted, make a slurry of 1 ounce cornstarch and 2 ounces water and add to stew while at a simmer.
