Beef stew with dark beer & bacon is a wonderful and simple recipe, for which you do not need to be a master in the kitchen and / or special kitchen utensils.
Start the preparations by peeling the onion and garlic. Then cut both into small cubes. I don’t want to give you any big tips, like a diving mask or a submarine (so you can dive down while someone else cuts the onion for you), but I would like to recommend a sharp knife. This will make things easier for you.
My last advice you will love at the latest now, when you free the pancetta from the rind and dice it afterwards likewise in not too big cubes. Butcher the beef (I like to use the breast / brisket here) into larger pieces, just as if you were cutting goulash.
Now heat half of the oil in a suitable pot (as with all braised dishes, we recommend a Keine Produkte gefunden.) and fry the cubes of bacon, onion and garlic until translucent. When this step is done, take out the glazed cubes for the beef stew and put them aside.
Now pour in the remaining oil, heat it up again and fry the beef cubes in it (in portions, if necessary). The pieces of meat may take some color.
Now add the previously sautéed cubes, pour in soup and beer, add the bay leaves and the dried plums, bring to a boil, close the pot with a lid and simmer this delicious beef stew for about 2 hours. The softer you let the meat become, the tastier it will be!
Finally, if the degree of cooking of the beef brisket is OK for you, season with salt & pepper.
