Beer Beef Stew

Submitted to us by Steam Whistle supporter, Susan Boyle.


Dust beef cubes with flour. In a large heavy pot with cover, melt butter and brown flour-dusted beef cubes. Remove from pot. Add garlic, onions, carrot and ginger until soft. Add brown sugar, beef, and beer. Cover and cook for 30 minutes on medium/high, turn down to medium/low for another 1 1/2 hours.

Serve on rice or noodles, with warm biscuits and a bottle of chilled beer!
