Method

 
Heat a large, heavy-based frying pan over a high heat. Once it’s hot, add a little oil and then some of the meat. Stir-fry until browned. Remove from the pan and repeat with the remaining meat.

Heat the butter in the same pan. Cook the onion over a medium to low heat until golden brown. Stir in the flour. Add the stock gradually, stirring continuously. Add the beer and the thyme. Simmer for 5-10 minutes, until thickened, stirring now and then.

Add the meat to the gravy and season to taste. Serve with potato and vegetables.

Tip of the day

 
Carving meat
Always allow your roast to rest for 5 to 15 minutes before carving so that the juices can be reabsorbed and the meat presents an even surface when sliced. Use a short- or long-bladed knife, and a two-pronged carving fork with a guard. To prevent the meat from losing juice, steady it with the flat of the fork, rather than piercing.
