    Heat oil in a large soup pot over medium heat. Add meat and brown on all sides. Lower the heat, add onions and garlic and saute for 5 minutes. Add tomato paste, cover and cook gently for about 5 minutes.
  • 2Pour Guinness over meat; add the carrots and thyme. Stir, taste, and add a little more salt if necessary.

    Cover and simmer until the meat is tender, about 45 minutes to 1 hour.
  • 3Add a fresh parsley sprig to each bowl of stew along with a scoop of "green" mashed potatoes*. Stew may also be served with plain boiled potatoes, colcannon, (mashed potatoes and cabbage) or champ (mashed potatoes, scallions, milk and butter).
