  1. Preheat oven to 325°F.

  2. Heat 2 tablespoons oil in large Dutch oven over medium-high heat.

  3. Rub meat with remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil, along with caraway seeds, garlic powder, salt and pepper. When oil is shimmering, sear meat on all sides to achieve caramelization.

  4. Reduce heat to medium and add onion to pan. Continue cooking for 3 to 4 minutes or until onions start to soften. Add beer and scrape browned bits from pan using spoon.

  5. Transfer pan to oven to cook until succulent inside and nicely browned and crusted outside, about 3 to 4 hours.

  6. Remove from oven and transfer meat to cutting board to rest.

  7. Whisk cornstarch into 1 cup water and add to drippings and bring to a boil over medium-high heat until thickened.

  8. Slice meat or pull apart in chunks. Place meat on platter, drizzle with gravy and serve.
