  1. Cut stew beef cubes into 1 1/2 inch pieces. Place cubes in bottom of crock pot.
  2. Combine all other ingredients and pour over beef.
  3. Cook on Low for 8 to 10 hours or on High for 4 - 5 hours.
  4. Before serving, you can thicken broth with some flour and water. Turn crock pot to high and stir in flour mixture.

  6. Note: I like to use Negro Modelo which is a dark Mexican beer for this recipe. The dark beer is really nice to cook with.
