  • 2 tsp corn starch (optional)
  • 2 tbsp flour
  • 4 cups cooked rice or roughly 2 uncooked
  • 2 tsp water


  • season the meat with salt and pepper then toss with flour to coat the meat evenly
  • heat some oil in a large pot at medium high, once sizzling add the beef and brown 3-5 minutes, then remove with a slotted spoon, leaving any juices, and set the meat aside
  • turn the heat to high, add the garlic and saute for about 30 seconds. Then add the Guinness.
  • Once the Guinness begins to simmer reduce heat to medium and scrape the brown bits off the bottom of the pan
  • Add the beef broth, HP, mustard and vegetables to the pot, stir to combine then bring to a boil, reduce to low and cover.
  • cook on low, covered for 55 minutes, stirring occasionally. Uncover and bring the pot to a light simmer and cook another 5-8 minutes until the liquid reduces a little and the broth thickens
  • If the stew is still too thin, you can either continue to simmer or stir together the corn starch and water, then add to the pot and stir to thicken.
  • serve with white rice
