    Cut chuck roast into 1-inch cubes and try to remove any large pieces of fat. Toss cubed beef in flour and season with a pinch of salt and pepper.

  • 3

    Add carrots, parsnips, onions, garlic and new potatoes to pan and stir all ingredients together. Let cook for a few minutes to combine flavors.

  • 4

    Add tomatoes, Guinness™, beef broth, brown sugar and chili powder and bring to a slight simmer.

  • 5

    Turn heat down to low and simmer, partially covered, for at least an hour (but up to 2 hours) until beef is very tender.

  • 6

    Season with salt and pepper to taste and serve garnished with sour cream and scallions.
