Beer Stew Recipe

Saturday, October 29, 2016

Most of the stews I make have wine. This one I used beer and the meat just melted apart. Great tenderizer and the taste was awesome. I was pleasantly surprised on this drunken stew. Get the best crusty bread ready to dip this amazing sauce in!

Beer Stew Recipe

3 pounds boneless pork, beef or chicken or venison stew meat
4 cubed potatoes
3 zucchini cut
3 plum tomatoes cubed
1 cup peas
1 cup sliced or finger carrots
1 stalk celery
1 pound mushrooms
1 pound green beans cut
2 sliced bell peppers
1/2 teaspoon fennel seed
1 teaspoon each Italian seasoning, granulated garlic, salt, pepper
cayenne pepper is optional to taste for a little heat
1 - 28 ounce can crushed tomatoes 
2 - 12-ounce cans beer
water if needed if too thick

Dump everything into a huge saucepot. Simmer on low for 3 hours or until meat falls apart and sauce is thickened. 
NOTE: You can also use a slow cooker on high for 4 to 6 hours or low 6 to 8 hours but only use 1 can beer.
