- 2 pounds stew beef
- 3 cloves minced garlic
- 4 cups of beef broth
- 1 can of the most flavorful beer (Boxer Beer used here!)
- 4 potatoes, cubed
- 4 carrots, french cut, peals on
- 1/2 teaspoon Kosher salt
- 1/2 teaspoon paprika
- ground pepper
Brown the stew meat with butter and olive oil. Remove the meat, and cook the garlic in the drippings for a few moments, DON'T let it burn. Or your done. Add the beef back in with broth and beer. Add the salt, paprika, and pepper. Cover and cook at a low simmer for 2 hours.
Add the potatoes and carrots and cook for another half hour. Serve topped with parsley and bread.
Jbiz hated it. Too many veggies. I liked it. Sigh, story of my life.

I made this using Pioneer Woman's recipe. I made it for Teacher Appreciation Day. The recipe calls to use a 9x9 pan, but I only have an 8x8 pan. So, I used my 8x8 and 2 ramekins, called it close enough. That way the heart ramekins were leftovers for John and I. I should have cooked the ramekins for a shorter period of time.

How cute are these? I got them at Target for $8.74. Pretty sweet, they were on the clearance end cap, 75% off. I like them, they have no laces, just slip right on for easy AND stylish runs out to the mailbox. Plus, all the toddlers love them. Target has a pair of black ones I have my eyes on right now, but they are still $34.99.
