360 calories/serving


800 g blade pot roast, cut into cubes
1/3 cup white flour (all purpose) 45 g
1 tsp butter, unsalted 5 g
1 tbsp olive oil 15 mL
2 onions, finely chopped 400 g
2 tbsp Italian parsley, fresh, chopped 10 g
1 bay leaf 0.2 g
3 cups beer Guinness 750 mL
1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce 15 mL
1 pinch salt [optional] 0.1 g
ground pepper to taste [optional]


  1. Preheat the oven to 160ºC/325ºF. Dredge the beef cubes in flour.
  2. Heat the butter and oil in a casserole dish over high heat. Add the beef cubes in batches, turning them until dark brown on all sides, 5-7 min. Take the cubes out of the casserole using a slotted spoon, then transfer them to a plate.
  3. Add the onion and sauté over medium-low heat about 5 min, with occasional stirring. Add the parsley and bay leaf. Put the meat back into the dish. Pour in the Guinness and the Worcestershire. Let cook about 5 min.
  4. Put the dish in the middle of the oven, and cook until the meat is tender. Make sure that the meat does not get too dry, adding more beer or water if necessary.
  5. Serve.
