  • 800 grams stewing beef roughly chopped
  • 12 medium-sized potatoes halved
  • sea salt and ground black pepper
  • 1 handful fresh rosemary, leaves picked finely chopped
  • extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 red onion, peeled and chopped
  • 200 grams scrubbed baby carrots
  • 1 parsnip, peeled and grated
  • 2 tbsps marmite
  • 2 heaped tablespoon pearl barley
  • 3/4 pint Guinness
  • 2 Knorr rich beef stock pot

  1. Preheat your oven to 180 degrees.

  4. Heat your casserole dish with some more olive oil and fry off the beef in batches for 3-4 minutes, or until brown.

  6. Next, add the pearl barley, grated parsnip, Marmite and ale to the casserole dish, mix until combined. Then, stir in the dissolved Knorr® Beef Stock Pots.

  7. Bring the mixture to the boil and simmer for about 20 minutes with the lid off.

  8. Place in the stew into the oven with the lid on for 2 hours.

  9. Add the potatoes and cook for a further 50 minutes.

  10. Garnish with some freshly chopped parsley and serve.
