Beef Bourguignon with Beer
Preparation time: 15 min
Cooking time: 15 min
- 2 lbs beef stew meat, cut into pieces
- 1 yellow onion, chopped
- 1 sliced carrot
- 5 oz. diced thick-cut bacon
- 5 oz chopped tomatoes
- 1 1/4 cup amber beer
- 1 tbsp flour
- Salt & pepper
Heat the pot to 2/3 of the maximum power of your stove, and test the heat using the 'water drop' technique.
Brown the pieces of beef, then add onions.
After browning for 2 minutes, add carrots and bacon and cook for 2 more minutes.
Sprinkle with flour and roast it, stirring regularly, for 2-3 minutes.
Add the beer and bring to a boil, add the chopped tomatoes and add water if needed to cover the meat.
Cover with lid and cook for about 2 1/2 hours over a low heat.
Season with salt and pepper.
Tip: You can make this recipe without tomato, just beer and water for a more pronounced beer flavor.
