Crazy, but the best Beef Marinade EVER!

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
If your a pot roast or beef stew type of guy (or gal), give this a shot.

Warning, takes a long time to cook and will smell up the neighborhood good!


Cut up your beef in marinade size portions, also to fit into your baking pot.


For 3 lbs of beef your going to need

Mix:

2 cups of Apple cider (good stuff)

1 whole head of pealed and crushed garlic

2 Tablespoons each: whole peppercorns, dried thyme (or fresh)

1 Tablespoon each: mustard seeds, cajun seasonings

1 Teaspoon each: ground allspice, ground cumin, celery seeds

2-4 whole cloves


Marinate beef with above ingredients overnight in air tight sealed bag, transfer all to oven safe pot with lid and add one bottle of a dark beer (Guinness) in the morning. (to the pot, not your stomach!)

bake on low temperature for as long as you can stand it and the beef is cooked, the longer the tenderer it gets, 8 to 10 hours.

strain the leftover juice of solids (add cornstarch to make a gravy?)


Anyway, I'm not that good of a cook, but stumbled upon this recipe from someone who is.

The assault on your sense of smell will be overwhelming and the hunger pangs sharp. I had to apologize to my neighbors for making them so hungry, they were looking a bit violent in the eyes.

Enjoy it in good health.

Saved the recipe and I'll give it a try.

Perhaps because I think a recipe being posted on a tech site is crazy, got to admit it's unusual anyway.

But we all gotta eat!

Cool, tell me what you think.

I think it would get a severely anorexic teenage girl to eat her right leg, if it had any meat on it.
