A simple and comforting stew recipe that's perfect for the coldest nights.
Before you start
A baking or casserole dish with a tight-fitting lid is necessary for this recipe.
- Preheat the oven to 160ºC/325ºF.
- Prepare the vegetables: Cut the carrots and celery stalks into large pieces (about 2-3 cm thick). Finely chop the onion and garlic. Leave the meat whole.
- Heat the oil in a thick-base roasting pan over medium heat. Brown the meat thoroughly on each side until golden, 7-8 min total. Take the meat out and set aside.
- Add the onion and garlic to the pan and sauté 3-4 min until translucent. Add the other vegetables and cook 2-3 min, then deglaze with the wine 1 min. Add the cornstarch and the herbs, then pour in the beer and the sauce demi-glace. Bring to a boil, then put the meat back into the pan. Add salt and pepper to taste.
- Cover then cook in the middle of the oven until the meat is very tender (about 2 h 30 min per kilo of meat).
- Serve the with the cooking juices.
This stew can be made a few days ahead and reheated over moderate heat.
