  • Wipe out pot with paper towels. Add 2 tablespoons reserved fat to pot, and heat over medium-high heat until hot.

  • Season beef with 2 teaspoons salt and 1 teaspoon pepper. Working in batches, cook beef until browned on all sides, 2 to 3 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer beef to a bowl. Add more reserved fat between batches if needed.

  • Pour fat from pot into the bowl, and reserve. Add 1 cup stock to pot, and cook, stirring and scraping bottom, for 1 minute. Pour over meat.

  • Heat reserved fat in pot. Add yellow onion and garlic, and cook for 3 minutes. Stir in mushrooms, and cook for 2 minutes. If bottom of pan begins to burn or onions begin to stick, stir in about 1/4 cup of the remaining stock. Sprinkle flour over vegetables, add mustard, and cook, stirring constantly, for 1 minute.

  • Return beef to pot. Add remaining stock, the stout, thyme, and bay leaves. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer, partially covered, for 1 hour 20 minutes.

  • Add potatoes and cipollini or pearl onions, and partially cover. Simmer until potatoes and onions are tender but not mushy, about 25 minutes. Stir in bacon. Season with salt and pepper.

  • Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add 1 tablespoon salt. Cook noodles according to package instructions. Drain. Add butter and dill to warm noodles, and toss. Season with salt and pepper.

  • Combine horseradish and vinegar. Ladle stew over noodles, and garnish with carrots, dill, and horseradish.

This is one of the best meals I've made. People love it. I used horseradish in a jar instead of the grated and it was delicious. Very hot. It is great over the egg noodles and the dill adds a great flavor. I also served the meal with big buttermilk biscuits which was perfect.

I made this stew over the weekend and everybody loved it. I didn't want to serve it over egg noodles so I added some extra potatoes and served it with some roasted carrots and parsnips. I'm sure I'll make it again.
