Poor Man's Baked Beef in Beer Sauce Belgian Style

180 mins (prep 180)
11 ingredients
6-8 servings
This is not a low fat dish, but it is absolutely delicious considering how relatively simple it is to prepare. The slow cooking and the ingredients make the beef come out very tender and with a rich hearty flavor that melts in your mouth. In my opinion this dish is well worth every bit of the work it takes to make it.
