Beef and Beer stew

So I was reading a Jon Snow chapter of A Dance With Dragons and they kept talking about Three Finger Hobb’s Three Meat Stew, which they joked was mutton mutton and mutton. It also contained carrots, onions and turnips. I was pretty hungry when I read that so it got stuck in my head that I hadn’t had a beef stew in awhile. Mutton is ironically more expensive per pound than I’d like, so I just stuck with beef. Normally you’d put a stout in this stew, but I really like the deep flavor of London Porter (see my beer and sriracha chicken post). So I went with that instead. It was just what I needed on this frigid June evening. And it’s slow carb friendly!
