I got this recipe from my friend Aliza R who got it from Family First. I made it last night with rice and there was nothing left. The kids scarfed it down without hesitation. Definitely a new dish in my repertoire.
2 lb beef stew meat (I used veal)
2 Tbsp. oil
2-3 large onions cut into wedges
1 1/2 c. light beer
1 bay leaf
2 Tbsp. Vinegar
2 Tbsp. Brown sugar
Season the meat with salt, black pepper and paprika.
In a braising pot, heat oil over a high flame. Sear meat on all sides. Remove the meat and set it aside.
Add the onion wedges and sauté for 10-12 min. Add the beef, beer, bay leaf, brown sugar and vinegar.
Lower flame to low, cook covered for 2 hours.
The last half hour leave the cover slightly open. Raise flame and cook uncovered for 10-15 min or until sauce is reduced.
Serve with steak fries or roasted potatoes. [I served with rice.]
This was really easy to make. Truth be told, you could just throw everything together in the crock pot in the morning, leave it on low, and you have the main dish ready when you get home from work.
