Sailor's Stew

Rated as 3.4 out of 5 Stars

"This is a hearty beef stew using beer and beef broth as its base. It's very yummy and I've never had any complaints about it. If you use older potatoes in this recipe they will break down better during cooking and thicken the sauce."

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Place meat in a plastic bag with the flour. Toss to coat evenly.
  2. Heat oil in a heavy skillet over medium-high heat. Remove beef cubes from the bag, and shake off excess flour. Brown beef cubes on all sides, and remove to paper towels to drain.
  3. Place potatoes on the bottom of a 3 quart casserole dish or Dutch oven. Place the beef cubes over the potatoes, then cover with carrots and mushrooms. Pour in the beer, beef broth, and soy sauce. Toss in the peppercorns.
  4. Bake uncovered for 2 hours in the preheated oven, or until meat is very tender.

Nice easy recipe. I also added some Worcestershire sauce to the gravy for the second night re-heats. Serve with pasta or rice to make it go further.

Easy! I did add a little cornstarch to thicken. My family loved it and it's all gone.

I think I might have liked this better had I added other spices. I also didn’t like the flavor the beer added to the soup,. Or the whole peppercorns. No one likes to bite into a while pepperco...

This was pretty good. I made a few changes-used only one beer and ground up the peppercorns, added 1/2 cup beef broth in exchange for the beer. I also added garlic powder after trying this stew-...
