Beer-Braised Beef Ingredients

  • 1 kilo Beef (use boneless beef shin), sliced into 3-inch pieces
  • Salt to season
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil divided
  • 2 cups white onion diced
  • 1 Cup carrot diced into 1 1/2-inch cubes
  • 1 Cup celery diced (sliced into 1-inch cubes)
  • 4 cups beef stock divided
  • 2 cups beer San Miguel Pale Pilsen or Cerveza Negra
  • 1/4 Cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 Cup water
  • sweet potato (kamote) to serve (optional)


  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • Season beef with salt and pepper on all sides. Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in a large heavy-bottomed casserole over high heat. When almost smoking, add meat; sear until browned, about 2 to 3 minutes per side. Transfer beef to a plate; set aside.
  • Heat remaining olive oil in the same pot over medium heat. Add onions, carrots, and celery; cook for 5 minutes or until tender and fragrant. Add 1 cup beef stock; simmer for 2 minutes, scraping the bottom to loosen the brown bits. Add remaining stock and beer.
  • Add beef back to the pan. (Make sure beef is fully submerged.) Cover with a lid or foil. Place pot in the preheated oven; cook for 21/2 to 3 hours or until fork tender.
  • Combine flour and water in a small bowl; stir well to form a smooth paste. Transfer pot to the stove over medium heat. Gradually add flour mixture into pot; simmer gently until sauce is slightly thickened. Season to taste. Set aside 2 to 3 cups beef and store in a covered container in the refrigerator. Serve with sweet potato mash, if desired.
