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 !!
