The next step will be to fry the cut up onions, garlic and carrots in a pan until they are golden brown.


Remember that the ingredients must be brown, not burnt. So occasionally give them a turn and stir with the spatula to prevent burning.


When everything is well browned, pour half a can of beer into the pan and let it evaporate until a little less than half is left.


Then add the beef broth to the sauce. You'll notice how the broth will slowly evaporate, creating a reduction in the sauce.
