Beef in Cider

This is an inexpensive dish, although special enough for a dinner party – quite simply a classic boeuf bourguignon only made with cider and every bit as good.

 
 

This recipe is taken from Frugal Food

Method

Start off by melting some beef dripping in a very large solid frying pan and frying the sliced onion for 5 minutes. Then turn the heat right up, add the cubes of meat and brown them quickly on all sides, tossing them around frequently.

Next sprinkle in the flour, stir it around to soak up all the juices, then gradually pour in the cider – stirring all the time – and add the chopped garlic and herbs. Season with salt and pepper, then pour the whole lot into a casserole, put the lid on and cook in the oven for 2 hours.

Now, using a bit more beef dripping, fry the small onions and bacon to colour them lightly, and add them to the casserole together with the sliced mushrooms. Then put the lid back on and cook for a further hour. This is nice served with buttered noodles or onion-flavoured rice.
