Boozed up meat

Most of my recipes have sentimental value, when I cook a meal I always have a memory attached to it. This recipe was given to me by my local butcher Vaggelis, he's such a sweet man and very humble, since he knows that I always try to new recipes he suggested the following. It was mouthwatering and juicy !! I hope you enjoy.He didn't give me a name so I did, it's my butcher's boozed up meat !

3 pounds of beef ( choose the roast beef type) 
1 can of beer ( I use sweet beer)
1 regular onion
1 teaspoon black peppercorns
3 garlic cloves 
1 teaspoon honey
1 teaspoon mustard
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper
1/2 teaspoon oregano
1/3 cup of Olive Oil 
wax paper
Clay pan ( if you have, other wise use a regular pan) 

Take a deep bowl, pour your beer, add all the ingredients and mix then,  cut your onions in small pieces and add it in mixture. Take your beef wash it ( I always do ) place it in the mixture and allow it to marinate till  the next day, this will  make your beef  very tender and juicy. There wasn't any left overs !


I use a clay pot ( makes the food tastier), place your meat inside, pour some of the mixture, add your oil, cut your garlic in small pieces add salt, pepper and oregano to taste. Cover it with wax paper as seen in picture.

Place in oven cook at 350 for an hour or until it's tender you can serve with boiled rice or baked potatoes like I did. 

A picture is worth a thousand words they say, if that's so I wish this picture could show you just how tender the meat is. My son was asking for seconds !!! 
Another dish from my kitchen to yours ! KALE OREXI !! 


  1. I know my hubby would love this! And that reminds me I must get some potatoes on for supper!

  2. Thanks Crystal for stopping by, the potato recipe is coming right up !

  3. I love how cooking means alot to you. This looks VERY delicious and i think i might have to make this one for the hubby. Great pictures.

  4. This looks so yummy and easy to make. I love that you shared and that butcher's shared as well.

  5. This sounds like a tasty meal! I am confused about using the wax paper though. The wax will melt in the oven and it is possible for the paper to catch on fire. Perhaps parchment paper would be a better substitute.

  6. True. Clay pots make dishes tastier. Thanks for sharing the recipe. :)

  7. Looks delicious and the best part is that it doesn't look to hard to make on my own!

  8. I never knew that about clay pots. Thank you for sharing this recipe. It doesn't look too difficult to try myself.

  9. Beer works really well to tenderize meats and adds flavor while the alcohol is cooked off. Great reminder to use it.

  10. My husband would love this! Sounds so delicious!

  11. Thank you all for stopping by. Food, does means a whole lot, food means binding and bringing family together.
    @Hannah, sorry about that but here in Greece they call it wax paper, I did some reading and yes you can use parchment paper and I also found out that there's something called a silpat baking mat, it's more expensive than parchment paper but can be used many times over.

  12. This sounds like a great meal. I am not a fan of beer so I am not sure that I would like it.

  13. Sounds like when my dad used to make beer-can chicken...... LOL

  14. Thank You for stopping by ladies :) , @Christy if you don't like beer, you can use vinegar, it won't taste the same but it will tenderize the meat. :)

  15. Thanks for linking up. Your post is pinned to the Creative K Kids Tasty Tuesday Link up board!

  16. Thank You Anna have a beautiful day :)
