Olla Podrida Combolina Recipe

The Beer Fox says, “Reminiscent of your vacation to the Mediterranean, this highly seasoned stew blends ‘good times’ with friends.”

Recommended Brew:  Pancho Verde Chile Cerveza Beer - Rio Grande Brewing Co., Albuquerque, New Mexico USA

Style: Chile Ale – Translucent Gold in color – Bursting with the steamy flavor of green chile peppers, a spicy heat emanates from this zesty ale, offset by a light balance between the malty sweetness and delicate hoppiness.

2 lbs. lean beef, cut in 1-inch chunks
2 lbs. lean ground beef
1 medium onion, peeled and quartered
2 tablespoons olive oil
¼ C. water
8 oz. Pancho Verde Chile Cerveza Beer

2 peppers, seeded and chopped
1 tablespoon chopped pimento
1 can chick peas, drained
½ C. mini-corn cobs

In large skillet, steam Chorizo sausage in ¼ C. water for 20 minutes. Drain water and set sausage aside.

In Dutch oven, brown beef chunks, ground beef, and onion in olive oil. Cut sausage in 1-2 inch portions. Add to beef/onion mix. Add Pancho Verde Chile Cerveza Beer, beef stock, and salsa.
