3 1/2 lbs. stewing beef, cut into 1-inch cubes
1/4 cup flour
3/4 tsp kosher salt
3/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper
2 tbsp canola oil
1 tbsp canola oil
4 cups diced yellow onion
2 cups sliced white mushrooms
1 cup diced celery
2 large garlic cloves, minced
1/2 tsp kosher salt
1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
2 dried bay leaves
10 sprigs fresh thyme, tied with kitchen string
1 1/3 cups dry red wine
1 1/3 cups Guinness
4 cups beef broth
2 cups carrots, peeled and cut into 1-inch cubes
2 cups turnips, peeled and cut into 1-inch cubes
2 cups red potatoes, peeled and cut into 1-inch cubes

1) Place beef in a large bowl and toss with flour, 3/4 tsp salt and 3/4 tsp pepper. In a large soup pot, heat 2 tbsp canola oil over medium -high heat. Add meat in a single layer, browning it in batches if your pot isn't big enough. Brown meat on all sides 5-6 minutes until a good crust forms. Transfer to a bowl and repeat with remaining beef. Wipe out pot when finished browning.
2) In the same pot, heat 1 tbsp canola oil over medium-high. Add onions, mushrooms, celery and garlic, stirring occasionally and cooking 8 minutes. Season with salt, pepper, bay leaves and thyme. Add browned beef, red wine and Guinness. Bring to a boil over medium-low heat. Add beef broth, turnips, potatoes and parsnips. Simmer uncovered on low heat for 1 hour.
