Stout Beer Braised Beef with Onions
Serves 4

1 TBLS vegetable oil, divided
1 1/2 pounds beef sirloin, cut into cubes
1 1/2 cups Stout Beer, divided
3 onions, chopped
4 cloves garlic, chopped
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup chicken or beef broth
2 tsps mustard seeds
1 TBLS juniper berries (optional)
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
3 potatoes, peeled and cut into chunks
1 TBLS parsley, chopped (optional)
2 tsps grated lemon zest (optional)

In large saucepan over high heat, warm half of the vegetable oil. Add half of the beef cubes; brown well on all sides. Remove from pan and set aside. Repeat with remaining vegetable oil and beef cubes. (Beef is cooked in two batches to ensure even doneness.) Brown well, remove from pan and set aside. Reduce heat to medium-low; stir in 1/4 cup beer, scraping the bottom of the pan to lift off brown bits.

Add onion and garlic to pan. Cook until very wilted and beginning to brown, about 4 minutes. Whisk in flour. Gradually stir in remaining beer and broth. Return beef to the pan. Add mustard seeds and juniper berries, if using. Stir in salt and pepper.
Cover pan; bring stew to simmer by reducing heat. Simmer over very low heat for 45 minutes. Stir in potatoes; simmer and additional 15 minutes, or until potatoes are tender.
Before serving, top stew with parsley and lemon zest, if using.
