I printed this off of allrecipes.com over 2 years ago,and made it several times, until my husband said he didn't like it THAT much. I wanted it again, so I added the potatoes - then it was great! So the spuds are optional
- 1⁄4 cup vegetable oil
- 3 lbs boneless beef chuck roast, cut into 1 inch cubes
- 2 onions, chopped
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 3 -4 red potatoes, cut into cubes
- 1 (29 ounce) can roma tomatoes, with juice
- 2 (4 ounce) canschopped green chilies, drained
- 1 (12 ounce) can beer
- 1 cup beef broth
- 2 teaspoons dried oregano, crushed
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons ground cumin
- 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
- In a Dutch oven, heat oil over medium heat until hot.
- Pat the meat dry with paper towels and brown in batches, transferring the meat to a bowl with a slotted spoon as they are done.
- In the fat remaining in the pot, cook the onions until softened, about 5 minutes.
- Stir in the garlic and cook for one more minute.
- Return meat to the pot with any juices in the bowl and add the potatoes, tomatoes with juice, chilies, beer, beef broth, oregano, cumin and Worcestershire sauce.
- Season with salt and pepper to taste.
- Bring to a boil and reduce heat.
- Simmer, partially covered, for 2 1/2 hours or until meat is tender.
MEPSTER - we had this for supper last night. I did an adaptation for the crockpot, because I'm just not home long enough before suppertime to cook it as listed. The night before, I browned the meat, and sauteed the onions & garlic. I put the meat back in, and added just the beer. Got it up real hot to cook off the alcohol as much as possible. Then I stirred in the oregano, cumin & worcestershire before I put it into a shallow covered dish to refrigerate overnight. When I got up the next morning, I peeled two VERY large potatoes and cubed them into the crockpot; dumped the meat mixture in, and added the tomatoes & green chilies. Having done a few crockpot adaptations, I decided that the 1 cup of beef broth would result in a very soupy sort of stew, so instead I used one packet of instant low sodium beef bouillon (makes 1 cup of bouillon) without dissolving it in water first. I just stirred the powder in along with the tomatoes. I cooked it on low for about 10 hours. I had no idea what it would taste like, but I love green chiles in many dishes, and everything else is standard fare for our house - just never put it together like this before. Well, when we came home, (me, my kids, and a couple of their friends) one of them said they could tell we were having Chili for dinner. I said, "Well, not quite, but there ARE chilies in it." My kids both loved it, their guests loved it and had seconds (my kids don't eat much when the have friends over - or they probably would have had seconds as well) and I had...um...3 helpings. (*BURP!*) Good eats, MEP. Thanks!
Very good! I used 1 can of diced tomatoes with green chilies, added some cutup jalapenos in the fridge, used a beef bouillon cube with 1 cup of water and cut the recipe in half and we have enough for a dinner this weekend. Going in the keeper file. Made for the MEP Cookathon 2009.
A very nice twist on traditional stew. I used one can of Mexican Rotel in place of the roma tomatoes & green chiles. This is excellent served with flour tortillas stuffed with a little mexican cheese.... a great dipping tool!
