Beef with plums and beer in oven pots

Here the beef is braised with vegetables and spices in a tomato and beer sauce in oven pots in the oven. The plums support the flavor of the meat and the beer makes it particularly tender and gives a special wheat flavor. A crisp salad and a side dish round off the meal nicely!
