4 hours 15 mins
1 pound beef stew meat, cut into 1″ chunks
1 tablespoon flour
2 teaspoons oil
1 large onion (about a pound) cut into 1″ chunks
1 clove garlic, chopped
1 bay leaf
1 can (12 ounce) beer
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon pepper
Cooked egg noodles for serving
Toss the beef cubes in the flour to coat.
Heat the oil in a pot over high heat and brown the beef cubes on two sides. You may have to do this in two batches.
Add all other ingredients except noodles. Cover the pot and simmer about 3 hours.
Remove the lid and simmer another hour uncovered or partially covered to allow the sauce to thicken.
Serve over noodles.
