Beef slow-cooked in a mixture of beer and water enriches and gives a nut-like flavour to the meat. The bread on top is delicious too.

To Make Beef

To Serve

1

Preheat the oven to 170°C.

2

Cut the beef into 2.5-3cm pieces and place in a bowl with a dash of oil.

Heat a large frying pan over a medium-high heat and, in batches, quickly brown the beef on both sides.

5

Transfer to an ovenproof casserole dish as you go.

6

Reduce the heat to low, add another dash of oil and the sliced onion.

7

Cook onion until it softens and begins to colour, then add the garlic.

Add the flour and mix well.

9

Pour in the beer and hot water and bring up to the boil, stirring continuously.

Add the herbs, nutmeg and vinegar and season.

11

Pour over the beef, place on the lid and place in the oven.

Cook for 2 1/2 hours until the beef is meltingly tender.
