  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 1 leek, thinly sliced
  • 2 carrots, peeled and diced
  • 1 tablespoon tomato paste
  • 1 cup beef broth
  • 5 large potatoes, washed and skinned
  • 1 cup dark stout beer
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley leaves
  • 1 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup peas


  1. Heat olive oil in a large stockpot over medium heat. Season beef with salt and pepper, to taste. Add beef to the stockpot and cook until evenly browned – about 2-3 minutes; set aside.
  2. Add garlic, onion, leek, potatoes and carrots to the stock pot. Cook, stirring occasionally, until tender, about 3-4 minutes. Stir in tomato paste until well combined, about 1 minute.
  3. Whisk in beef broth, beer, parsley, thyme, bay leaf and beef; season with salt and pepper, to taste. Bring to a boil; reduce heat, cover and simmer until the beef is tender, about 90 minutes.
  4. In a small bowl, combine butter and flour. Add mixture to the stockpot until thickened, about 2-3 minutes. Stir in peas.
  5. Serve immediately and enjoy!
