  1. Heat the olive oil in a large pan, drain the brisket from the marinade and sear until browned all over.
  2. In a large shallow bowl marinate the brisket overnight in the ale, honey and garlic.
  3. Transfer to an ovenproof dish, cover and slow roast in an oven at Gas mark 2, 150°C, 300°F until very tender (for at least 3 hours).
  4. To prepare the dip: put all the ingredients in a food processor and blend until smooth.  Set to one side.
  5. Remove the brisket and set aside to cool. Dip the 'fingers' in the egg wash, then the seasoned manioc (cassava) flour.  Deep fry for 180°C, 350°F for a few minutes until golden brown.  Remove the fingers, drain on absorbent kitchen paper and serve with the dip.
