Base: Beef Comments:
Preparation Time:
Number of Servings: 6

3 Tablespoon(s) Vegetable oil
3 Pound(s) Boneless chuck cut into
Chunks for stew
6 Cup(s) Sliced onions, 1 1/2 lb
Salt to taste
pepper to taste
4 Garlic cloves, minced
1 Cup(s) Beef stock or bouillon
2 Tablespoon(s) Brown sugar
2 Cup(s) To 3 cup dark beer
microbrew preferred
1 Herb bouquet *
1 1/2 Tablespoon(s) Cornstarch - blended with
2 Tablespoon(s) Red wine vinegar
Herb bouquet is 6 parsley springs, one bay leave and 1/2 teaspoon
dried thyme tied in a cheesecloth. Preheat oven to 325. Add oil to
heavy skillet and heat until almost smoking. Brown meat quickly in
batches, do not crown the pan. Set meat aside. Reduce heat to medium,
add onions (add more oil if necessary)and brown onions lightly for 10
minutes, stirring frequently. Remove from pan and set aside. Season
with salt and pepper and then stir in garlic. Arrange half of the
browned meat in dutch oven and season lightly with salt and pepper.
Spread half of the onions over the beef. Repeat with the rest of the
beef and onions. Heat the stock in the skillet scrapping up any
browned bits stuck to the bottom. Stir in the brown sugar and pour
over the beef/onion mixture. Add enough beer so the meat is barely
covered. Bury the herb bouquet in the center of the meat chunks.
Bring the mixture to a simmer on top of the stove, cover and place in
lower third of the preheated 325 degree oven. Cook at slow simmer for
2 1/2 hours. Remove herb bouquet. Drain liquid into a saucepan and
skim off fat. Blend cornstarch mixture into the cooking liquid and
simmer for 3 to 4 minutes. Taste and correct seasoning. There should
be about 2 cups of sauce. Pour sauce back over the meat. When ready
to serve, cover the casserole and simmer for 4 to 5 minutes until meat
is heated through. Serve with new potatoes or noodles garnished with
parsley. Washington Post 2/7/96 == Courtesy of Dale & Gail Shipp,
