CRISPY RATING: You do get some of the beer flavor, and it's nice and tender

  • 2 pounds beef, trimmed, cut in 1-inch cubes
  • 2 cups sliced onions
  • 2 cups potatoes, cut in 1-inch cubes

  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 cup beer (or beef broth)
  • 1 dash ground nutmeg, optional
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper

1. Preheat oven to 350F. Arrange opened Roasting Bag in 13x9-inch baking pan. Place meat and vegetables in bag.

2. Combine brown sugar, seasoning blends, pepper and, if desired, nutmeg. Sprinkle over meat. Pour beer over meat and vegetables.
