2 - 3 lamb chops
1 lb. boneless, sirloin steak, cubed
1 T. oil
1 lb. onions, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
1 pt. Guinness Beer

2 c. water
3/4 lb. carrots and new potatoes, sliced and cubed
2 - 3 t. dried tarragon
3 T. flour
1/4 c. water
salt and pepper to taste


Brown all sides of beef and lamb in oil.
Add onion and next 7 ingredients including bones from lamb chops.
Reduce heat and simmer for 30 minutes.
Remove bones. Add carrots, potatoes, tarragon.
Cover and simmer 30 minutes.
Remove and discard bay leaves.
Combine: Flour, 1/4 c. water and stir until smooth.
Slowly add flour mixture to stew.
