BRAISED BEEF WITH TOMATOES AND RIPE OLIVES
This hearty entree is easy to make and satisfying. As far as
the beer to use in cooking, English ales work well if they are not too bitter.
Don't use an India Pale Ale. Brown ales will work well.
2-1/2 lbs chuck steak
3 tablespoons oil
2 large onions, sliced
1 green pepper, cut into strips
1 cup ripe olives, pitted
3 tomatoes, peeled, seeded and quartered
1 tsp tomato paste
1 tablespoon flour
1-1/2 cups ale
salt and pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cut beef into cubes. Trim well.
Sauté in a skillet
in hot oil, adding a few pieces at a
time. Transfer as it browns into a casserole. Sauté onion and pepper in the oil
until softened. Add olives, tomatoes,
and tomato paste and cook for 1 minute. Stir in flour and add ale slowly. Season
with salt and pepper and add to the
beef in the casserole. Cook for 2-1/2 hours until tender.
