    Tiomarrano's Note:

    This is not a low fat dish, but it is absolutely delicious considering how relatively simple it is to prepare. The slow cooking and the ingredients make the beef come out very tender and with a rich hearty flavor that melts in your mouth. In my opinion this dish is well worth every bit of the work it takes to make it.

    • 3 lbs beef, cut to large pieces
    • 4 -5 tablespoons flour (enough to fry beef)
    • 6 cups onions, chopped coarsely
    • 8 carrots, peeled and sliced coarsely
    • 6 -8 garlic cloves, peeled and crashed
    • 2 1/2 tablespoons sugar
    • 2 1/2 tablespoons vinegar
    • salt and pepper (to taste)
    • 4 tablespoons oil (for frying, more or less as needed)
    • 3 (12 ounce) cans beer (light or regular)


    1. 1
      Coat beef in flour. Discard any unused flour if any.
    2. 2
      Fry floured beef in skillet in medium hot oil on each side until nice and browned.
    3. 3
      Remove beef and arrange it evenly across the bottom of a deep metal or glass casserole pan.
    4. 4
      Reheat the skillet where there are still pan drippings after frying the beef.

    10. 10
      Bake covered with aluminum foil for 2-3 hours at on medium-low (275 or 300 degrees) until meat is very tender and the other ingredients form a thick, rich sauce around the beef. Slow cooking is what makes this recipe work.

      MmmmMMMmmmmMMMM GOOD! Delicious,rich,velvety sauce,the beef was tender and flavorful...5+ Stars for you! It was simple to prepare and then just pop into the oven and forget about it for 3 hours!A perfect meal for a chilly Autumn day. Thanks so much! The only addition I made were some fresh button mushrooms,quartered which I added when I added the carrots.
