Guinness Beef Casserole
2kg diced Beef, 2 large onions, 1 tin of Guinness. A good splash of Olive Oil, cornflour, salt and pepper, 2 or 3 sprigs of Rosemary.
Toss diced beef through flour, brown well in olive oil. Do this in 2 or 3 batches so that the meat caramelises well. Add meat to casserole dish as it is browned. When you have finished browning the meat, add the onions to the oil and cook until slightly caramelized and soft. Pour in Guinness, bring to boil and pour over meat. Add a couple of sprigs of Rosemary and cook in a low oven for about 2 hours.
This will give 2 or 3 meals for a family of four. One day make a Carbonnade of Beef by topping it with garlic bread. Another day make a meat and vegetable pie by stirring through some cooked carrot, potato and peas and top with puff pastry. Or serve just as it is Beef cooked in Guinness.
