This was similar to what I used in my pressure cooker - well, without the beer. For my taste I would probably substitute a can of stewed tomatoes instead of the beer. But there were NO leftovers!!!!! Thank you for posting this recipe. SA

I did not have 8hrs to cook this so I cooked it on high for 3 hrs.then on low for 2hrs to shorten the cook time. I did not add the potatoes until after 2 hrs of cooking. It turned out fine but next time I will allow more time and cook on low. I will also cut back on the red pepper next time.

This recipe is what I was looking for ! Used Amber Bock, even put some in the Stew ! HA HA HA ! Used the oven because of the cold weather and wanted the house heated also. But will use in the summer crock pot. DH loved it also, This is a keeper Thank You Cheri J.

I made some changes based on ingredients I had at home, specifically, I had no beer, ale or otherwise. In lieu of beer, I used 1/2 roasted tomato sauce (from a can of whole roasted Miur Glen tomatoes) and 1/2 onion stock. I used everything else in the recipe, and cooked the living daylights out of the meat. It was delicious! A great way to cook an inexpensive cut of meat. I was concerned my crock pot was going to scorch the meat, et al, even at the low setting, so about half way through (4 hrs), I dumped some ice in. I'll make it again, and maybe next time I'll get some ale!
