6 servings (serving size: 3 ounces beef, 3/4 cup potatoes, and 1/3 cup sauce)

How to Make It

Step 1

To prepare steak, sprinkle steak with 1/2 teaspoon pepper and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Heat oil in a Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add steak; cook 5 minutes on each side or until browned. Remove steak from pan; set aside. Add 1 1/2 cups onion, chopped carrot, 2 tablespoons broth, and sugar. Cover, reduce heat to medium, and cook 10 minutes. Stir in rosemary, mushrooms, and garlic. Cover and cook 2 minutes. Add bay leaves, stout, remaining broth, and steak; bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 1 hour and 30 minutes or until steak is tender.

Step 2

To prepare potatoes, place potatoes in a large saucepan; cover with water. Bring to a boil; simmer 20 minutes or until potatoes are tender; drain. Return potatoes to pan. Add butter; beat with a mixer at medium speed just until smooth. Stir in remaining ingredients. Keep warm.

Step 3

Remove steak from pan; keep warm. Discard bay leaves. Increase heat to medium-high; cook 5 minutes or until slightly thickened. Spoon stout mixture over steak. Serve with potatoes.

Followed ingredient list. Trimmed and cut chuck into 2"-3" pieces, dredged in flour and browned. Subbed broth, pouring from an open beef box rather than cracking a chicken box for just 1/2cup. Slow simmered much longer than 1.5 hours, until chuck was tender. Made the horseradish potatoes to recipe. Served with CL's brussels sprouts/bacon/shallots. Pretty good cold-weather supper.

AMAZING! All the ingredients blended well together for a very flavorful meal. I used Herbs de Provence instead of just rosemary and it was delicious. This recipe is definitely a keeper!

We made this last year around St Patrick's Day. It is so good we have added it to our winter meal menu.

My family strongly disliked the potatoes - I think we are just not fond of horseradish. So I will not make those again. As for the meat- we could not detect the beer and it was expensive to buy Guinness just for one dinner since we don't usually drink it. We definitely enjoyed the steaks, I just think the cost out weighs the taste so we will probably not make this unless I have Stout already in the house. In summary, will keep the steak recipe and toss the mashed potatoes
