Prepare the Braised Beef

Prepare the Sticky Dark Gravy

Add a hearty sauce of stout beer, red onions, raisins, cherry marmalade and tomato paste to your Irish braised beef.



  1. Prepare the Braised Beef

    • Season the beef and sear.
    • Remove the beef and set aside. In the same pot, add the vegetables and cook until vegetables begin to color. Reduce the heat to medium-low, cover, and sweat.
    • Add the beef, herbs, beer, wine, and prepared beef base and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer, cover, and simmer until the beef is tender. Remove meat and reserve braising liquid. Slice beef and hold hot for service.
  2. Prepare the Sticky Dark Gravy

    • Heat the reserved braising liquid.
    • Whisk in the dry Knorr® Demi-Glace Sauce Mix (unprepared) into braising liquid until dissolved.
    • Stir in raisins and cherry preserves and bring sauce to a simmer. Hold hot for service.

  3. To Serve

    • Place an 240 g. portion of beef on the plate. Top with sticky dark gravy.
    • Consider pairing with mashed potatoes or celeriac mash for an authentic flair.
