Beef Burgundy Stew
The Vice President for the Southern division of Sears, Roebuck, and Co. sent us this recipe after a trip to France.
Classic Slow Cooker Beef Stew
A nutty dark beer adds richness and depth to the stew. Be careful not to choose a beer that's super-hoppy; it will taste too bitter. To get 2 pounds of trimmed meat, you'll probably need to purchase a 2 1/2-pound roast.
Mushroom, Beef, and Bacon Stew
You can use just about any mushroom you like for this stew (or a mix of varieties), as long as you add the more delicate ones during the last hour of cooking.
Flemish Beef and Beer Stew
Nothing says cozy like a hearty beer and beef stew. The sweet and sour Belgian ale adds major flare with flavors of plum, black cherry, and brown sugar which complements this seasonal stew for an oaky sapor.
Beef Marsala Stew
This is an ideal recipe for the slow cooker, where gentle, prolonged cooking turns tough beef into tender bites. Serve the stew over a mound of Fluffy Mashed Potatoes.
Red Wine Beef Stew
Beef and Guinness Stew
This hearty beef stew is made with lean boneless chuck that's cooked with carrots, parsnips and turnips and flavored with dark beer. Simmering it in a Dutch oven for about 2 hours makes the meat and vegetables fork tender and delicious.
Classic Beef Stew
One of the great things about stews is that the low-and-slow cooking makes even the toughest cuts of meat fork-tender. This stew calls for bottom round, a lean but tough cut of beef. Tomato paste, dry red wine, beef broth, dried thyme, a bay leaf, and an assortment of vegetables round out the dish. Since this recipe makes 8 to 10 servings, it's perfect for casual entertaining or freezing extra portions for a later date.
West African Beef, Plantain, and Okra Stew
While not nearly as sweet as bananas, plantains do have a sweet flavor. In this soup we keep that sweetness at bay by using firm plantains with green skins rather than riper brown-skinned ones--the sugars will have not yet developed, so the fruit will add starchy body to the soup without too much sweetness.

This perfectly balanced dish found its way into our regular rotation.
Paprika Short-rib Beef Stew

Crock Pot Beef Stew
Let the crock pot do the work for you with this delicious and hearty beef stew.
Hearty Beef and Stout Stew
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.
