Number of Servings: 12


    beef chuck, peanut oil, medium onion, cloves garlic, canned diced toms, jalapeno peppers, serrano peppers, cumin, oregano, chili powder, fresh cilantro, bay leaf, water, bottle of negro modelo beer


In a large pot or a Dutch oven, brown the beef on medium high heat in 2 tablespoons of the peanut oil, may have to do in batches.
Remove beef from pot, add the final 2 tablespoons of peanut oil and cook on medium heat the onions and chiles for about 10 minutes or until the onions are translucent. Add the garlic and cook for another minute.
Throw in the browned beef, add the herbs, spices, water and beer and mix everything really well. Turn up the heat to high, bring the stew to a boil and then turn heat down to low and simmer for five hours, stirring occasionally. At this point, some of the meat will have turned to strings thus thickening the gravy.
