Oven Irish Stew

Oven Irish Stew

Cooks Tip: Stew can be prepared on stove-top or in crock pot. For stove-top, cover and cook over low heat, stirring occasionally, for 2 hours. For crock pot, cook on high, stirring occasionally, for 4 hours.


  • 3 tablespoons lite soy sauce
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2 pounds lean beef or lamb stew meat
  • 4 to 6 carrots, peeled and sliced or 2 cups peeled baby carrots
  • 1 large onion, halved and thinly sliced
  • 1 cup thinly sliced celery
  • 3/4 cup Irish lager or beer
  • 2 teaspoons MAGGI Instant Beef Flavor Bouillon or 2 MAGGI Beef Flavor Bouillon Cubes
  • 1/4 teaspoon each dried marjoram and thyme leaves, rubbed between fingers to release flavor
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh parsley


  1. Heat oven to 325 degrees F.
  2. Combine soy sauce and flour in large, oven-proof casserole dish or Dutch oven. Add beef or lamb; stir to coat. Stir in carrots, onion, celery, beer, bouillon, marjoram and thyme. Cover.
  3. Bake, stirring occasionally and checking for doneness near end of cook time, for 2 hours. If broth becomes too thick, add more beer, about 1/2 cup at a time. Alternatively, if stew is too thin, remove cover during last half hour.
  4. Stir in parsley before serving.
