Preheat oven to 150 C / Gas 2.
Melt butter in a large saucepan. Add the beef and sear over a high heat, until well browned. Remove the beef and add bacon, cooking until crisp. Add onions and cook over low heat until soft. Add the mushrooms and cook for a further 2 minutes.
Combine beef, onions, bacon and mushrooms to a casserole dish, adding the red peppers and currants. Sprinkle over the flour and season with salt and pepper. Add sugar, mace and allspice. Mix well and pour over the Guinness®. Add enough water to cover the ingredients. Add in the bay leaves, cover tightly.
Bake slowly in the preheated oven for 3 hours or until meat is really tender.
Just prior to serving, remove the bay leaves, add chopped parsley and more seasoning if desired.
This dish is great served over mashed potato or with croutons for garnish.
