This is a recipe that conjures up immediate happy memories for me. My Grandma Pat, a woman I love dearly, makes this every time I go to hers. We don’t see each other very often as she’s over two hours away, and when we see each other it’s amazing. This recipe comes from a book my grandma has, from the 1930s I think. The book is all battered and loved very much by my grandma. This is the first time I’ve made this and it brings up very happy memories.
2 onions, sliced
4 rashers of streaky bacon, chopped
1 1/2 tbsp flour
2 cups of ale or beer (we use Newcastle brown ale)
1 Small bay leaf
1 Clove of garlic
1 tbsp sugar
1 tsp vinegar
Turn off the heat and add the beer gradually, stirring constantly until blended.
Stir and put in a preheated oven at 160°C for two hours, or until meat is tender.
Remove the bay leaf and garlic clove
