BEEF IN BEER: THE BLACK SHEEP RETURNS















I had a great time in L.A, well you can see that for yourself and I am still having slightly unsavoury dreams about Marty’s Chilli dogs and the deep-fried chicken giblets at Roscoe’s Chicken N’Waffles.

However, after all those meals prepared by someone else, I am pleased to be back in my own kitchen and in control of the ingredients. Added to the urge to do a bit of home cooking the fact that I returned from 90o weather to a perishing London and it seemed like an opportune time to drag the slow cooker from the back of the kitchen cabinet where it has been languishing for over a year.

After eating American for fifteen days, it also seemed appropriate to celebrate some of our own dishes and a joint of Donald Russell beef in the freezer was the main event in a stew made with Black Sheep Ale, carrots, onions, button mushrooms and some rare breed pork lardons.

The sauce was spiked with a good beef stock, splendid Henderson’s Relish from Sheffield and, my own secret ingredient in stews and casseroles, a single Thai chilli, which gives it a nice little kick at the end.

So, as I say, I have lots of reasons for wishing I was back in L.A, but with Winter approaching, and more dishes like this one in my near future, Britain ain’t such a bad place to be.

Did you feel that involuntary short intake of breathe as you pour the Black Sheep into the dish thinking 'I hope the finished product does justice to not drinking it straight'?
