I found this on the internet and adapted to how we like it. Since some people don't care for the flavor or the beer just replace with extra beef stock. This dish is also great to add any root veggie that you like. I make a spice bag out of cheese cloth and put thyme and bay leaf in there and pull out before thickening.
