  • Electric Skillet


  • 3 tbsp. olive oil divided
  • 2.5 lbs. sirloin steaks cut into big pieces
  • 1 onion chopped
  • 4 celery stalks chopped
  • 1 carrot chopped
  • 8 oz. bacon chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • ¼ cup flour
  • ¼ cup tomato paste
  • 3-4 cups beef broth
  • 3 bay leaves
  • 1 can Guinness beer or other black beer
  • Salt and pepper
  • Fresh dill to garnish


  • Heat the electric skillet to medium-high heat (375ºF).
  • Add 2 tbsp. olive oil and the beef. Fry beef until golden brown on all sides and reserve.
  • Lower heat to medium (300ºF).
  • In the same skillet, add the remaining 1 tbsp. olive oil, onion, celery, carrots, bacon and garlic. Cook for 2 minutes.
  • Add the flour and tomato paste and mix it around. Add 3 cups beef broth and the bay leaves. Return the beef to the skillet.
  • Pour in the black beer.
  • Cover and cook for about 40 minutes at low heat (200ºF) - if it starts to dry out, you can add more of the broth.
  • Discard bay leaves. Season with salt and pepper, if needed. Serve topped with fresh dill.
