Via The Cookie Rookie
Adapted and Inspired from

Prep Time:  15 min
Cook Time: 8 hr
Total Time: 8 hr, 15
Yield: 6-8 servings

10 small red potatoes, quartered
1 (14.5 ounce) can sliced carrots
2 full stalks celery, chopped
3 lbs stew meat, cubed
1/2 cup flour
salt and pepper to taste
1 teaspoon garlic powder
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 1/2 cups diced onion
2 (8 ounce) cans tomato sauce
10 ounces beef broth (about 1/3 of a large box)
1 (13 g) envelope Onion Soup Mix
1 teaspoon dried basil
12 ounces (1 bottle) Guinness Stout

Put potato, carrot, and celery chunks in the bottom of crock pot on low heat. Pour in beer, beef broth, garlic powder, salt and pepper, soup mix, and basil. Stir to combine.
Season beef lightly with salt and pepper and then coat in the flour.
Heat oil over medium high heat in a large skillet. Cook the beef until almost browned, and then add in the onion. Continue turning and browning until the meat is fully browned and the onions are soft and translucent, about 5 minutes.
Add meat and onions to the slow cooker.
Stir in the tomato sauce and cover, heating on low for 8 hours or high for 4 hours. Low is best, but if you don't have the time, high will work!

Serve with lots of bread and more Guinness! Enjoy!
