6-8 Hrs

The pot ‘o gold at the end of the rainbow after a day of overdue yardwork:

2 1/2 pounds lean beef stew meat, cut in 1-inch cubes
1 large onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
3 carrots, cut in 1-inch slices
2 ribs celery, cut in 1/2-inch slices
2 medium potatoes, cut in 1-inch cubes
1 cup beer
1 cup beef broth, or use all beer
2 teaspoons salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1 teaspoon oregano
2 tablespoons tomato paste
3 tablespoons melted butter
1/3 cup flour

Place all ingredients, except butter and flour in the Crock Pot; mix well. Cover and cook on low for 8 to 10 hours. Mix melted butter with flour; add to the stew. Taste and adjust seasonings. Turn to high and cook until thickened, about 15 to 20 minutes. Serves 6 (or 1 for the better part of a week!).
