|3 pounds||Lean beef stew meat cut into 1 1/2 inch pieces|
|2 mediums||Onions thinly sliced|
|1||8 oz can mushrooms (or pieces) un-drained|
|1||12 oz can of beer|
(I prefer a dark beer, and my favorite dark beer is Negro Modelo, a Mexican beer) 1 Tbsp vinegar 2 beef bouillon cubes 2 tsp sugar 2 cloves garlic, minced 1 tsp thyme 2 bay leaves Put the beef in the crock pot. Combine all the other ingredients and pour over the beef. Cook on low for 8-10 hours or on high for 4-5 hours. Before serving thicken juices if desired. Joyce says she uses some flour or corn starch to do this.
