Beer-Simmered Steaks

Author: Canadian Living

Minute steaks cooked in a flavourful stock and beer make an economical meal of meat that is tender enough to cut with a fork.

  • Portion size 6 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 lbs inside round fast-fry steaks
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 onions sliced
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 3/4 teaspoons dried thyme
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 3 cups beef stock
  • 1 beer (or 1-1/3 cups/325 mL beef stock)
  • 1/4 rutabaga
  • 4 potatoes peeled and thickly sliced
  • 2 carrots
  • 2 celery stalks
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 teaspoon cider vinegar

Method

Sprinkle steaks with half each of the salt and pepper. In large shallow Dutch oven, heat half of the oil over medium-high heat; brown steaks, in batches and adding remaining oil as necessary. Remove to plate.

Drain any fat from pan. Add onions, garlic, thyme and remaining salt and pepper; fry until dark golden, about 15 minutes. Return steaks and any accumulated juices to pan. Add bay leaves, stock and beer. Bring to boil; reduce heat, cover and simmer until steaks are tender, about 1-1/2 hours.

Peel and cut rutabaga in half lengthwise; cut crosswise into slices.

Add rutabaga to pan along with potatoes, carrots and celery; cook, covered, until potatoes are tender, about 40 minutes.

In small bowl, whisk flour with 1/3 cup (75 mL) cold water. Stir into stew; cook, stirring, over medium heat until thickened, about 7 minutes. Discard bay leaves. (Make-ahead: Let cool for 30 minutes; refrigerate, uncovered, in shallow container until cold. Cover and refrigerate for up to 2 days; reheat.) Stir in parsley and vinegar.
