I love to try something new each week for our meals. So i got this chunk of meat from the grocery and looked in the internet for a nice easy recipe and found Beer-Braised Beef with Onions. Why not give it a try ? I did a lil variation because Rosemary leaves are not available in my cupboard when I tried this recipe.
For the ingredients:
- 1 whole Chuck Roast, 2 1/2 To 5 Pounds
- Salt And Pepper To Taste
- 3 Tablespoons Olive Oil
- 4 whole Onions, Peeled And Sliced Thick
- 5 cloves Garlic Chopped
- 2 cans Beer
- 1 teaspoon Ground Thyme
- 1/2 teaspoon Rosemary Leaves
It says :
Prep Time: 5 Minutes | Cook Time: 3 Hours | Difficulty: Easy | Servings: 6
It is really easy to do, just maybe extended time slow cooking it. Serving depends on the size of the meat you got. And if you don’t have an oven, stove cooking is good as long as you keep the heat really low so that the meat is tender and moist.
Preheat oven to 275 degrees.
Heat oil in a large dutch oven over high heat.
Season meat generously with salt and pepper.
Sear meat on both sides, about 2 minutes per side.
Remove meat from pan. Lower heat to medium.
Throw in onions and garlic. Stir for 30 seconds.
Pour in beer, and add thyme, rosemary, and salt to taste—about 1 teaspoon. (Do not undersalt!)
Add meat to pot, put to submerge, and place lid on pot.
Cook in oven for 2 1/2 to 3 hours, or until meat is fork tender and falling apart.
Shred meat with two forks. Serve on dinner plates and spoon juice and onions over the top.
Serve with very crust bread to sop up the juice.
I added some veggies in here, like pumpkin . It made the plate happier i guess.
