    Ingredients and Preparation

    Ingredients Measures
    Olive oil 2 + 2 teaspoons
    Beef round eye, visible fat removed and sliced into ¼-inch thick pieces 1 pound
    Salt 2 dashes + ½ teaspoon
    Freshly ground pepper 2 dashes
    Pale ale or light beer 10 ounces
    Water 4 ounces
    Beef bouillon cube 1
    Yukon Gold potatoes (1 pound), peeled and sliced crosswise into ⅛ to ¼-inch thick pieces 2-3
    Sweet potatoes (1 pound), peeled and sliced crosswise into ⅛ to ¼-inch thick pieces 1-2
    Yellow onions, sliced 3
    Fresh parsley, chopped ¼ cup
    Directions
    1. Heat 2 teaspoons of the oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add half of the meat and brown on both sides. Season with a dash of salt and pepper, and transfer to a plate. Repeat with the remaining meat.
    2. Pour beer and water into the skillet and add the bouillon cube. Scrape brown bits off the bottom of the pan and then transfer the pan juices to a bowl with a pour spout or a large measuring cup.
    3. Add the rest of the oil to the skillet and cook the onions for 2-3 minutes.
    4. In a Dutch oven or large pot, layer ½ of the potatoes, the meat, the onions, and then the remaining potatoes (ie, begin and end with the potatoes). Season the top layer of potatoes with the remaining ½ teaspoon of salt and add the reserved pan juices.
    5. Cover and cook over low heat until the potatoes are soft and the meat is tender, about 45 minutes. Garnish with parsley and serve.
