Halloween night hearty braised beef recipe…

Halloween night tends to be crazy around here, so I like to serve a real hearty meal to the family so that we can go along our evening with a full belly 🙂 This is when I like to make my hearty braised beef. Now, the best part about this recipe is that not only is it a great meal to fill our Halloween night bellies, but I make it in the IMUSA Calder0 that was sent to us, which in itself is the perfect Halloween color for Halloween dinner. 

Hearty Braised Beef


  • 3 slices of maple-cured, thick sliced bacon, diced…
  • 2 celery sticks, cut up
  • 1 cup or so of cut up carrots
  • 1 large onion sliced
  • 2 pounds chuck, though my MIL says in the future I should use Rump – whichever you use, remove fat and cut into large chunks
  • 1 cup dark beer – Be sure it is a REALLY dark beer – the darker the more tender your meat will be
  • 3-4 potatoes… I like to use a couple of yellow potatoes, as well as, sweet potatoes

Herbs & Spices

  • 2-3 sprigs rosemary
  • 2-3 Bay leaves
  • 1 Tablespoon dry mustard
  • 1 Teaspoon All Spice
  • 1 Teaspoon Sage

Hearty Braised Beef

Take my advice and get started early in the day… cut up all the veggies and meats…

Hearty Braised Beef Veggies

Place your IMUSA Orange Silicone Rim Non-Stick Caldero (or another dutch-oven type pot) over medium heat. Add diced bacon and simmer for about five minutes. Once all the maple scents have come out, add carrots, celery, and onions and then brown for about ten minutes.

Once they are soft, pour them into a bowl and add cubed chuck or rump over high heat and brown… Then add the veggies back in, along with the potatoes. Pour in the all spices and beer, then cook in the oven on 300 for about an hour.

When the meat is tender and the veggies and potatoes are cooked through, bring out of the oven and serve.

Hearty Braised Beef for Halloween

I love using my IMUSA Orange Silicone Rim Non-Stick Caldero because it is so versatile it cooks about anything and can be used on the stove or in the oven (without the lid.) It is also so lightweight that I can literally hold it with a finger. 

Imusa Caldero

Oh and I forgot to mention, I suggest making some down-home country cornbread with this meal. It adds just the right touch of sweetness to this hearty braised beef.
