Cubed beef is simmered in beer with lots of onions. What else is better then that? Served with boiled carrots that you can add right in the pot. The gravy this makes tastes awesome on mashed potatoes!

I absolutely adored this recipe. And as most stews are it was way better the following day. I added a lot of garlic powder as I lacked dill. It gave it a lovely flavour. I also added a lot more salt. I also cooked this for about 2 hours and the meat was incredibly tender. I added baby carrots and wish I had added potatoes as well... next time I suppose! I liked this served in a bowl without mashed potatoes. We had the taters but we really didn't need them. I used a honey ale. Read More

This was pretty good though a little heavy on the rosemary. I had just over 2 pounds of beef so I proportioned everything to a 6 serving amount. Even though it takes awhile to cook it's actually pretty easy. I cut up 2 top round steaks which had very little fat subbed dried parsely and garlic powder and added carrots for the last 45 minutes. We ate it with mashed potatoes. I used Black Butte Porter for the beer. Read More

I made this yesterday for dinner and really enjoyed it. I did do some changes. I added extra garlic more beer less onions and extra salt and pepper. I made it in the morning and just warmed it up served over mashed Yukon Gold potatoes with a big slab of French Bread. Delicious!! Read More

Delicious! Great over garlic mashed potatoes and did add the carrots. Suggestion for the sauce: serve with fresh rolls/buns to soak up sauce or serve sauce in gravy boat and spoon the gravy with onions on fresh or toasted baguette slices. Didn't have dill in the house so omitted (but would like to try it with) and used 1 tsp. dried parsley instead of fresh. (Make sure the rosemary is not ground; it's perfect using dried rosemary.) Served the beef cubes to my daughter's VERY picky friend and she liked it!!! (Of course I had to serve the mashed potatoes separately with no sauce on it and give her raw julienned carrots instead of cooked - but finally something she will eat at our house instead of cheese pizza!) Make sure to keep stirring because it will stick to the bottom of the pan and burn. Read More

Good stuff. I went a little heavy on the garlic because I didn't have dill. I threw in a couple potatoes as well. We all loved it. Read More

This was a great recipe. I was looking for something different to cook tonight and came across this. I didn't have any dill or rosemary so i just went without it. I did add celery and carrots to the onion and garlic combo. After that got clear and almost browned and I added everything else to the pan. But wait...there's more...I also added a drained can of peas & carrots and I cut large dices of potatoes.. and I added two beef bouillion cubes.... The consistency is perfect. Read More

This was pretty darn good. I added carrots and celery and used 3 large garlic cloves. Only used 1/2 a large onion and it was plenty. I replaced the water with beef broth and I threw everything in the crock pot for the day. Served over mashed potatoes which was very nice. It needed something to thicken it up a bit. Great dinner to come home to! Read More

I was skeptical but this was wonderful. Served over mashed potatoes and added frozen carrots. I used cube steak on accident so probably didn't need to cook so long but this was excellent. Read More
