Beef in Beer recipe

This dish is fantastic for parties as it can all be cooked in one pot. If you find that more guests arrived than you anticipated, you can throw in a few mushrooms and another bottle of beer to make the batch up a little more.


  • 1kg lean beef, cut into cubes
  • 25g flour
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 carrot
  • 1 celery stick
  • 1 onion
  • 2 tbsp. tomato puree
  • 2 tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
  • 500ml bottle of beer
  • 500ml beef stock
  • 250g mushrooms
  • Olive oil

Method of Preparation:

  1. Peel the onion. Finely chop the carrot, celery and onion into small dice. Put the diced veg to one side.

  2. Place the beef into the flour and shake to rid the beef of any excess flour. Fry the beef in batches in olive oil until browned on all sides. Place the beef to one side.

  3. Fry the veg in the pot you cooked the beef in for around ten minutes, until it starts to soften and colour.

  4. Add the tomato puree and cook for a further minute. Add the Worcestershire sauce, then the beef stock, beer and the fried beef.

  5. Stir well and then season the mixture. Bring it to a simmer on the stove for half an hour, then cover it with foil and put it into the oven for four hours at 150C. Serve with crusty bread.
