12 ounces lean beef round, roast, cut into cubes

2 medium potatoes, peeled and diced (can substitute sweet potatoes)
½ pound baby carrots
1 cup beef broth
8 ounces light beer, any brand
¼ cup fat free evaporated milk
2 tablespoon cornstarch
1 teaspoon paprika

Coat a large non-stick skillet with cooking spray and heat over medium-high heat. Add beef, onion, pepper and garlic; cook until beef is browned, stirring, about 3 minutes.

Stir in potatoes, carrots, broth and beer; bring to a boil, reduce heat, cover and simmer until meat is tender, about 30 minutes.

Stir together evaporated milk, cornstarch and paprika in a small cup; add to beef mixture and stir to combine. Cook until slightly thickened and bubbly, about 5 minutes; cook, stirring occasionally, for 2 minutes more.
