Directions
  1. Put olive oil, rolled garlic cloves, paprika, pepper sauce and bay leaf in a pan and mix.
  2. Turn on the heat and let the garlic saute a little to release flavor but don't let it burn.
  3. Add the wine, beer, whiskey, port wine and a pinch of salt.
  4. When it boils, add the meat and mix it well in the sauce.
  5. Drizzle with half of the lemon juice,  add the piri piri sauce and the remaiding lemon juice to the pan.
  6. Let it simmer for about 45 minutes, so that the meat is tender, if you see that you need more sauce, add some more beer or white wine (do not add water).
  7. Before removing from the heat, check the seasoning.

You can if you want, but it will take away from the original taste, but of course you should always tweak a recipe to your taste. 🙂

In most of Europe, beer covers a whole world of flavours. But here in Portugal, beer only really means lager. And in Porto, this means Super Bock. But any quality, mid-strength lager should do the job
