1 Heat the pot to 2/3 of the maximum power of your stove, and test the heat using the 'water drop' technique.
2 Brown the pieces of beef, then add onions.
3 After browning for 2 minutes, add carrots and bacon and cook for 2 more minutes.
4 Sprinkle with flour and roast it, stirring regularly, for 2-3 minutes.
5 Add the beer and bring to a boil, add the chopped tomatoes and add water if needed to cover the meat.
6 Cover with lid and cook for about 2 1/2 hours over a low heat.
7 Season with salt and pepper.
Tip: You can make this recipe without tomato, just beer and water for a more pronounced beer flavor.
