Beef Stew with Beer & Paprika

Kelsie treated us to the perfect Sunday dinner... so yummy and good. Neither Larry or I lifted a finger in the kitchen and we felt very pampered, thinking we could sure get use to this. One day when we are old, we plan on going house to house and eating our way through visits in their homes... probably sooner than later!

Beef Stew with Beer & Paprika
by The Pioneer Woman Cooks

3 Tbs. olive oil
1 Tbs. butter
2 lbs stew meat
1 diced onion
3 cloves minced garlic
1 12oz can beer
4 cups beef stock
2 cups water
1 Tbs Worcestershire sauce
2 Tbs tomato paste
1/2 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp salt
Freshly ground pepper
1 1/2 tsp sugar
6 whole carrots, cut into chunks
6 new potatoes, quartered

Heat oil and butter in a large pot over medium-high heat. Brown meat in two batches, setting aside once brown. Cut pieces in half, set aside. Add onions, stir a few minutes until softened, then add garlic for another minute. Add all other ingredients except for the potatoes and carrots. Cover and simmer for 3 hours. Add carrots and potatoes, cook for another 45 minutes. Serve in bowls with good crusty bread.

The photo does it...I'll make stew this weekend. I've got the same book and have been reading about Marlboro Man (Pioneer Woman's husband). I especially like that we all have the same book even though we are mile apart. Thanks Kelsie for pampering your mom and dad!

Did you use non alcoholic beer? lol

My question is, Where do you find one 12oz can of beer in Utah County? I've done beer recipes in the past and it's always a pain (for us non-drinkers) to find just one can. I usually end up at the State Liquor store.
