2 Tbsp. cooking oil
½ cup flour
2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. black pepper
1 tsp. oregano
1 tsp. thyme

3 cups cut carrots

In a large ziplock bag, add the flour and all SEASONING.
Add the beef and shake until the beef is well coated.
In a large pan set to medium high heat, add the oil.
When the oil is hot add the flour coated beef and brown the meat on all sides, don’t let burn.
You may need to do this in batches.
When the meat has browned add the tomato paste and beef stock.
Stir the beef, tomato sauce and beef stock until a thick sauce forms.
Set aside off the heat.
Add the potatoes, carrots, celery, onion, and garlic to the slow cooker.

Pour over the Guinness beer and stir.
Add bay leaves on top.
Cover and cook on LOW for 8 hours or on HIGH for 4 hours without opening the lid during the cooking time.
Remove bay leaves.
Serve with rice.
