2.      Remove from pan and drain on a paper towel.

3.      Add onions and carrots to the pan.

4.      Sauté for 5 minutes, until soft.

5.      Pour half the beer in the pan to release the browned bits from the bottom.


Place meat, onions and carrots in a casserole dish.

1.      Stir in potatoes, tomato paste, broth, thyme, marjoram, bay leaf and the rest of the beer.

2.      Cover and bake for 3 to 4 hours, or until the meat and potatoes are tender.

Remove bay leaf before serving.
