Irish Beef Stew

Ingredients
1/4 cup olive oil
1 1/4 pounds well - marbled chuck beef stew meat, cut into 1 -inch pieces
6 large garlic cloves, minced
6 cups beef stock or canned beef broth
1 cup of Guinness beer
1 cup red wine
2 tbsp tomato paste
1 tbsp sugar
1 tbsp dried thyme
1 tbsp worchestershire sauce
2 bay leaves
2 tbsp butter
3 pounds russet potatoes, peeled, cut into 1/2 inch pieces (about 7 cups)
1 large onion, chopped
2 cups 1/2 inch pieces peeled carrots
salt & pepper
2 tbsp chopped fresh parsley

Directions:
1. Heat olive oil in heavy large pot over medium - high heat. Lightly
salt the beef pieces. Working in batches if necessary, add the beef
(do not crowd the pan, or the meat will steam and not brown) and cook, without stirring, until nicely browned on one side, then use tongs to turn the pieces over.

Continue to cook in this manner until all sides are browned, about 5
minutes. Add garlic and saute 1 minute. Add beef stock, Guinness, red
wine, tomato paste, sugar, thyme, Worcestershire sauce and bay
leaves. Stir to combine. Bring mixture to boil. Reduce heat to medium
- low, them cover and simmer 1 hour, stirring occasionally.

2. While the meat and stock simmering, melt butter in another large
pot over medium heat. Add potatoes, onion and carrots. Saute
vegetables until golden, about 20 minutes. Set aside until the beef
stew in step one has simmered for one hour.

3. Add vegetables to beef stew. Simmer uncovered until vegetables and beef are very tender, about 40 minutes. Discard bay leaves. Tilt pan and spoon off fat. Transfer stew to serving bowl. Add salt and pepper to taste. Sprinkle with parsley and serve.
