Beef In Beer

Published by torlott




  • 500g of cheap beef pieces (stewing steak usually is cheap)
  • 500 mls of real ale
  • 4 large onions
  • 2 fat cloves of garlic
  • tbsp of plain flour


raw beef, roll it in the flour...fry 4-5 pieces at a time in a hot saucepan to seal...put to one side when all done

cut the onions into quarters...fry in the same frying pan as the soak up the juices...

towards the end of frying the onion (they should be nicely brown round the edges) throw in the smashed up cloves of garlic.

transfer the beef, onions, garlic to a deep casserole dish. stir in the remaining flour

pour on the bottle of beer - really, it isn't going to be wasted!!!

cover, and cook at 150 for about 2 and a half hours...will be gorgeous when it comes out, trust me...serve with mash
