Smoky Chocolate Bison Stew

I made this up more than a week ago so the amounts are approximate. I'll do it again soon and refine it a bit, but it was really good.

1 1/2 lbs bison stew meat
1 bottle Phillip's Double Chocolate Porter
1/2 onion
2-3 carrots
1/2 tsp smoked paprika
salt
pepper
flour
3-4 strips bacon
1 tsp honey

Season flour. Dice bacon & onions and cook gently until browned in a stew pot. Remove bacon & onions from pot but leave all the fat. Toss the meat in the seasoned flour and brown meat. Add carrots & stir around, add the bacon & onions back in, then pour in the beer until the meat & veg are covered. Add paprika and honey, stir around a bit, cover and simmer 2-3 hours.

Mmm, looks good. Subbing an equal amount of beef instead of bison work well?

Yeah, you won't get the same depth of flavour though. You can get bison stew at the Oak Bay Village Butcher. It's worth it, honest.
