Method

In a frying pan melt a little dripping and fry the onion rings over a medium heat until they’re nicely tinged with brown and starting to caramelise all round the edges.

Now remove them to a plate, add a little more dripping to the pan if you need to and brown the meat over a fairly high heat. This browning (on both sides) will help the flavour.

Next take the shallow gratin dish or casserole, arrange a layer of onion in it, place the steak on top and season well.

Add another layer of onion, pour in the Guinness, cover closely with either a lid or a double sheet of foil and cook near the top of the oven for 2½ - 3 hours, or until the steak is tender.

This goes very well with some creamed potatoes – and with the oven on for that long, you might contemplate cooking another casserole at the same time.
