– Stew Meat – Olive oil – Garlic – Onion – Bacon – Flour


Start by cooking your bacon in a dutch oven or skillet on the stove. Remove and place your bacon on a paper towel-lined plate. Season the beef with salt and pepper.

Then add oil to the dutch oven and brown your beef on all sides. Remove as well. Pour in the diced onions, butter, and cook till translucent.

Then whisk in the flour to make the roux. Stir for 1 minute.

Pour in the beer and whisk till all the lumps are removed. Now add in all the other ingredients and beef, bacon, and bring to a boil. Cook the stew till it boils, then reduce and cook on low simmering for 2 hours or until the sauce thickens, to a light gravy.
