London Porter Stew
London Porter is a wonderful beer drunk on its own, as an accompaniment to puddings and deserts or even used in its own stew! Fuller's Brewing Manager Georgina Young shares her delicious London Porter Stew recipe...

You will need:

1 bottle of Fuller’s London Porter; 1 Lb of stewing steak; 2 Tbsp of oil; 1 onion chopped; 1 tin of chopped tomatoes; Worcestershire sauce; 1 pint of beef stock; 1 desert spoon of plain flour; Salt & Pepper; Mixed Herbs

1. Open a bottle of Fuller’s London Porter and pour yourself a ˝ pint to enjoy whilst cooking

2. Preheat the oven to 150°C/250°F/Gas mark 3

3. Put 2 tbsp of oil in a deep saucepan and heat before adding 1Lb of good quality stewing steak. Brown the meat all over and then remove from the pan and put it on one side

4. Fry the chopped onion until soft on a low heat in the same pan using the oil left from browning the meat

5. Put the kettle on and make 1 pint of beef stock; meanwhile add 1level desert spoon of flour to the onion and mix well to form a roux

6. Cook for a minute before adding some of the stock. Stir well. Continue adding the stock to the onion / flour roux until you have made a smooth sauce

7. Simmer for 2 minutes, stirring continuously

8. Add a tin of chopped tomatoes, a slug of Worcestershire sauce, a generous serving of mixed herbs and seasoning to taste

9. Now return the meat to the saucepan

10. Stir thoroughly and add the remainder of the Porter

11. Pop in the oven with some baked potatoes and pop down the local Fullers pub for 1˝-2 hours before returning to eat
Have a beer on me.

Shouldn't all recipes start like this?
