In this recipe, budget-friendly stew beef is slowly braised to perfection with beer, garlic, and onion. Serve with the gravy and mashed potatoes, rice and a salad, or make open-faced hot beef sandwiches.
3 pounds stew beef, cut into bite-sized pieces
3/4 cup all-purpose flour, divided
1/4 cup (4 tablespoons) unsalted butter
1 (12-ounce) can or bottle beer
1 medium onion, minced
1 clove garlic, minced
1 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/4 cup cold water
Gather the ingredients.
Coat the beef cubes with 1/2 cup flour. Brown in a skillet in the butter. Drain off excess fat.
In slow cooker, combine browned meat with the beer, onion, garlic, salt, and pepper. Cover and cook on low for 6 to 9 hours, or until meat is tender.
Turn control to high. Stir the remaining 1/4 cup flour into about 1/4 cup of cold water until smooth.
Stir the flour mixture into meat mixture, cook on high for 30 to 40 minutes longer.
- Lean chuck is a good alternative to stew beef.
- Instead of beer, 1 1/2 cups low sodium or unsalted beef stock.
