    This is a very simple stew but I will admit I did season & brown the meat in a mix of oil & rendered bacon fat - I just couldn't bring myself to skip that step no matter what he said in the intro. I used Newcastle Brown Ale & added fresh thyme & rosemary with the called for bay leaves. The recipe doesn't include potatoes (& I didn't want to add any) but I felt it needed more "bulk" so I used an idea from Chrissy Teigan's stew and added a couple of handfuls of cooked navy beans from the freezer and also a handful of frozen peas. Served over mashed potatoes, it was pretty good for a night where I needed dinner prepped early in the day ready to heat up after a late return BUT I'm not sure how often I would make this as I have many other excellent options for really delicious beef stews.
