Irish Stew with Murphy and Friends

From Dorothy McNett's recipes at Murphy can be a brand of Irish Whiskey, or it can be Murphy's Stout beer from Cork, Ireland. Have fun deciding which you prefer!

1-2 pounds lamb or beef roast or steak, cut into cubes
3 tablespoons unbleached all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
3 tablespoons unsalted butter or olive oil
2 thinly sliced onions
1-2 carrots, thinly sliced
1-2 parsnips or turnips, sliced
2 teaspoons raw sugar
1 teaspoon dry mustard
1 tablespoon tomato paste
1 bay leaf
1/4 teaspoon dried thyme, or 1 tablespoon snipped fresh
3-4 fresh parsley stalks
1 1/2 cups beef or vegetable stock
1/2 cup Murphy (Irish whiskey OR Murphy's Stout) plus 1/4 cup more

Combine flour, salt and pepper. Dredge the cubes of meat with the flour mixture. Heat oil or butter in a stock pot or large saute pan, and then brown the meat pieces on all sides, about 10 minutes total. Add remaining ingredients and simmer, covered, for 2-3 hours, adding a wee bit more Irish whiskey or beer during the last few minutes of cooking. Taste to make sure it is just right!
