In large, heavy sauce pot, sear beef cubes in olive oil.
Peel and slice onions, add to beef cubes, cover and let cook down 10 minutes.
While onions are cooking, mix the tomato paste and beer in a medium bowl. Add to pot and then spice with salt, pepper and paprika to your personal liking. Add bay leaf,then cover and simmer for one and a half to two hours, or until beef is tender. Remove bay leaf prior to serving.
Serve over egg noodles, rice or potatoes. Our preference is bow ties,or dumpling style.
