2 T. veg­etable oil
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pep­per
2 medi­um onions , thin­ly sliced
24 gar­lic cloves , minced (about 4 tbsp.)
2 beef bouil­lon cubes
1/2 c. hot water
8 oz. lager beer
3 T. brown sug­ar (cut back for a less sweet taste)

  3. Add the bouil­lon cubes to the hot water and stir to dis­solve; then trans­fer liq­uid to the skil­let along with the beer, brown sug­ar, mus­tard, and vine­gar; stir­ring to mix well.
  4. Pour mix­ture into the bot­tom of the slow cook­er.
  5. Place roast on top of liq­uid, cut­ting into pieces if it doesn’t lay flat.
  6. Set the slow cook­er on low and cook for 7–8 hours.
  7. Remove roast from the crock pot and pour liq­uid into a pan on the stove; heat to a boil, and mix a slur­ry out of the corn­starch and water; thick­en pan liq­uid with slur­ry to make a gravy.

Serve gravy over meat or with pota­toes or noo­dles.
