Ayinger Rump of Beef in Beer Marinade with Ayinger Altbairisch Dunkel

Serves: Four


  • 2 l (4 bottles) Ayinger Altbairisch Dunkel
  • 1.8 kg (4 lb.) rump of beef
  • 2 l (2 quarts) water
  • 1 large onion
  • 2 carrots
  • ½ leek
  • ¼ celeriac
  • 1/8 l (4 oz.) wine vinegar
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1 sprig of rosemary
  • 10 juniper berries
  • 10 black peppercorns
  • 240 g (½ lb.) butter
  • 150 g (5 oz.) flour
  • ¼ l (8 oz.) sour cream



Roughly chop the vegetables and bring to the boil with the beer, water and spices to prepare the marinade. Pour the cooled-down marinade over the beef rump. Make sure that it is fully covered; leave beef to marinate for two days in the refrigerator.

After two days, bring beef to the boil with the marinade, season, and simmer for approximately 2 hours.
Meanwhile, prepare a roux from the butter and the flour, allow to cool and add to the hot marinade, stirring well. Season thickened sauce according to taste, add sour cream and pass through a sieve.

Carve beef into slices and serve with the sauce. Goes well with hand-made malt noodles, or buckwheat or potato dumplings, and savoy or red cabbage.
