  • 3 cups dark beer

Method

Step 1

Trim the beef chuck and place in a container just large enough to hold it. Pour the Beer Marinade over and refrigerate several hours or overnight.

Step 2

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Lift the meat from the marinade and pat dry. Reserve the marinade. Over a medium high heat, in a heavy Dutch oven, heat the lard. Brown the steak on both sides. Add the onions and cook for 3 minutes. Add the garlic, cook for 2 minutes and then add tomatoes, salt, pepper, bay leaves, beer, water, and the reserved marinade.

Step 3

Cover and bake about 45 minutes. Add the carrots and potatoes. Cover and cook an additional 45 minutes or until the meat is very tender.

Step 4

To prepare the marinade, whisk together the oil, beer, and lemon juice. Add the garlic, salt, pepper, bay leaves, mustard, basil, oregano, and thyme. Mix well.
