Kahlua Pot Roast

Inspired by Melissa d'Arabian's Ten Dollar Menu recipe from Food Network, I made  my own version of her Pot Roast Carbonade by changing some of the ingredients.  She used beer on her recipe but I used Kahlua on mine. Kahlua is a coffee liquor. I also added some Mirin (a Korean's sweet cooking rice seasoning) to it and it's absolutely savory.  So here's how.

You need: (no specific  measuring for this)
  • Beef (cut into desired  pieces)
  • One Onion (Chopped finely)
  • Dried Prunes (optional)
  • Carrots
  • Potatoes
  • Bacon, 2 strips
  • Kahlua (or beer)
  • Mirin (optional)
  • Render the fat of the lardon in a pan.  I didn't have lardon so I used the regular bacon. Set aside.
  • Caramelize the onion in a slow  heat.  Set aside when it's done.
  • Brown the  beef to the pan, add some oil if you need to (I didn't).  It's important that you brown  all of the sides of the  beef.
  • Add the kahlua or beer.  I only add like three tablespoon of it since I only have a small amount of beef.  
  • Add a couple table spoon of Mirin (this is optional)
  • Add the carrots, potatoes, prunes, bacon, and caramelized onions.  
  • Cooked in a medium high heat for about 20 minutes till  the veggies are cooked.
This dish reminds me of the  Filipino dish called Humba.  It was really delicious.  I think this would be a regular menu   at our kitchen since my  husband loved it.  We both ate two plates  with this menu.  Yeah, I know, diets ruined lol.  We ate it with rice and  kimchi.
