Oven Irish Stew
A traditional favorite, this festive stew combines a medley of vegetables and seasonings with a hint of Irish lager — creating an explosion of flavor you can't resist. Recipe can be prepared stove-top or in a slow-cooker.
3 tablespoons lite soy sauce
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
2 pounds lean beef or lamb stew meat
4 to 6 carrots, peeled and sliced or 2 cups peeled baby carrots
1 large onion, halved and thinly sliced
1 cup thinly sliced celery
3/4 cup Irish lager or beer
2 teaspoons MAGGI Instant Beef Flavor Bouillon or 2 MAGGI Beef Flavor Bouillon Cubes
1/4 teaspoon each dried marjoram and thyme leaves, rubbed between fingers to release flavor
1/2 cup chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
- Preheat oven to 325°F (160°C).
- Combine soy sauce and flour in large, oven-proof casserole dish or Dutch oven. Add beef or lamb; stir to coat. Stir in carrots, onion, celery, beer, bouillon, marjoram and thyme. Cover.
- Bake, stirring occasionally and checking for doneness near end of cook time, for 2 hours. If broth becomes too thick, add more beer, about 1/2 cup at a time. Alternatively, if stew is too thin, remove cover during last half hour. Stir in parsley before serving.
