Hearty Beef and Stout Stew

Photo: Jason Wallis; Styling: Cindy Barr  

A bowl of Hearty Beef and Stout Stew is a comforting choice for a cozy, winter supper. We use a slightly bitter, dark beer to cut through the richness of the stew. After simmering, the beer loses its edge and adds deep, roasted flavors that typically come from a slow braise.
