Toss beef, flour, salt and pepper in a stainless bowl. Add oil to cast iron pot over medium-high heat. Sear beef until golden, 5 minutes on each side.
Remove beef and set aside. Add onions, celery, pepper and garlic to the same pot. Scrape any crunchy bits off bottom of pot. Cook for 5 minutes until translucent. Season with salt and pepper.
Add beef back to pot. Add stock, lager, herbs and bay leaf. Cover and cook for 1 1/2-2 hours until the sauce has thickened and beef is tender. Add carrot and mushrooms. Cook for 10-15 minutes more over medium heat. Season and serve baby! (Even better the next day after another slow simmer!)
