1 1/2 lbs. boneless beef chuck (1 inch thick)
1/4 lb. bacon
4 med. onions, sliced
1 clove garlic, chopped
3 tbsp. flour
1 c. water
1 bottle (12-16 oz.) Irish Guiness Beer (or any dark beer)
1 bay leaf
1 tbsp. packed brown sugar
2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. dried thyme leaves
1/2 tsp. pepper
1 tbsp. vinegar
Snipped parsley
Hot cooked noodles

Cut beef into 1/2 inch slices, cut slices into 2 inch strips. Cut bacon into 1/4 inch pieces, fry in Dutch oven until crisp. Remove bacon with slotted spoon; drain on paper towels. Pour off fat and reserve. Cook and stir onions and garlic into 2 tablespoons of reserved bacon fat until tender (about 10 minutes).

Remove onions. Cook and stir beef in remaining bacon fat until brown (about 15 minutes). Stir in flour to coat beef. Gradually stir in water. Add onions, beer, bay leaf, brown sugar, salt, thyme and pepper. Add just enough water to cover beef if necessary.

Heat to boiling and reduce heat. Cover and simmer until beef is tender (1 to 1 1/2 hours). Remove bay leaf. Stir in vinegar. Sprinkle with bacon and parsley. Serve over noodles. Yields 6 servings.
