  • 2 lbs chuck roast cut into 1 inch cubes
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil divided
  • 1 large vidalia onion diced
  • 2 large carrots peeled and diced
  • 2 large celery stalks diced
  • 3 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 2 cups beef stock
  • 2 1/2 cups Guinness beer
  • 2 tablespoons worcestershire
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh rosemary
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
  • 2 bay leaves
  • kosher salt and fresh ground pepper
  • 2 sheets puff pastry thawed but still cold
  • 2 egg yolks whisked with 1 tablespoon water
  1. Season the beef generously with salt and pepper.
  2. In a large bowl, toss the beef with the flour to coat evenly.
  3. Heat 1 tablespoon of the olive oil in a large dutch oven over med-high heat and add some of the beef cubes. Working in batches, brown the beef on all sides and then transfer to a bowl using a slotted spoon. Set aside.
  4. Drain off all but 1 tablespoon of fat from the dutch oven and add the remaining olive oil to the pot. Add the onions and cook until translucent. Stir in the carrots and celery, cooking until just tender. Add the tomato paste and cook until a deep burgundy color. Add the stock, beer, worcestershire, rosemary, thyme, parsley, bay leaves, 1 teaspoon kosher salt and 1 teaspoon fresh ground pepper stirring to combine. Add the beef back to the pot.
  5. Bring the mixture to a boil and then reduce the heat to low. Allow the stew to simmer, uncovered, until the beef is tender, approximately 1 1/2 to 2 hours. Turn off the heat and allow the stew to cool to room temperature. (At this point you can store the stew refrigerated in an airtight container until ready to use. )
  6. Divide the stew among 6 individual oven-proof bowls.
  7. Cut the puff pastry sheets into 8 equal pieces (yes, you will have two leftover). Lightly moistened the top of the bowl with a little water and place the puff pastry on top. Press down on the edges slightly to form a seal. Brush the top of the pastry with the egg wash. Repeat with the remaining bowls.
  8. Bake in a 400 degree oven for 20-25 minutes or until the pastry is a deep golden brown and crispy. Serve immediately.
