Oxtail Soup Mix Pot Roast

Makes 8 servings

Notes: Beef rump is very lean. You can also use boned and tied beef chuck, which gets more succulent but doesn't slice as neatly. Serve the meat and gravy with mashed potatoes or hot fettuccine

 1 piece (about 3 lb.) beef rump
 1 teaspoon salad oil (optional)
 2 onions (1 lb. total), peeled and sliced
 1 bottle (12 oz.) beer
 1 package (1.8 oz.) oxtail soup mix
Step 1

Wipe meat with a damp towel. Place a 5- to 6-quart pan over high heat and add oil (if desired). Add meat and brown lightly all over, turning as needed, about 5 minutes.

Step 2

Transfer meat to a bowl. Add onions and 2 tablespoons water to pan. Stir frequently until onions are lightly browned, about 5 minutes.

Step 3

Add beer, soup mix, and 1 cup water to pan; stir to release browned bits. Add beef and any juice. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, cover, and simmer gently until meat is very tender when pierced, about 3 hours.

Step 4

Lift meat onto a platter and keep warm. Let stand at least 10 minutes to slice neatly. Meanwhile, if needed, boil sauce, uncovered, over high heat, stirring occasionally, until reduced to 3 cups.

Step 5

Slice roast and serve with gravy.
