When oil smokes, add meat cubes. Cook, stiring frequently for 3 to 5
minutes, or until just brown. Using slotted spoon, remove meat from pan.
Set aside. While oil is still hot, stir in onion. Cook for 3 to 5 minutes,
or until well browned. Add garlic and cumin. Cook for 1 minute. Add chili
puree. Fry for 4 to 6 minutes, stirring frequently to prevent scorching.
Mixture will be thick and dark. Add meat, beer, and beef stock. Stir well.

Remove from heat. Stir in cinnamon and cilantro bundle. Ste aside, without
stirring, for 15 minutes. Remove and discard cinnamon and cilantro. Stir
