Brown beef in skillet with drippings, adding oil if necessary. Cook until browned, a few at a time. Add to casserole. In skillet, over medium heat, add 2 Tbs. flour to oil; cook oil and flour until browned, stirring constantly. Gradually stir in beer and remaining ingredients except vinegar; cook until thickened. Add to casserole. Bake, covered in 350 oven for about 2 hours or until meat is tender. Spoon off fat. Stir in vinegar. Serves 5-6. Good with mashed potatoes or egg noodles.

Grief fills the room up of my absent child, lies in his bed, walks up and down with me... Then have I reason to be fond of grief.


(BBQ Spareribs)

2 T. brown sugar
1 T. vinegar
1 clove garlic
dash liquid smoke
salt and pepper (optional)

2-3 lbs. pork ribs, boneless
1 c. ketchup
1 c. water
4-5 stalks celery
1 No. 2 can onion

Brown ribs on all sides. In blender, mix all other ingredients. Place ribs in large oven proof pan, pour sauce all over, cover, put in oven at 375, for about an hour and a half, or until meat is tender and sauce thickens. May need to add water while cooking. When meat is tender, remove lid, and cook until sauce is thick, not watery.

Note: I always made mashed potatoes with bacon bits and corn or green beans with this. Kelly loved this recipe, but had some trouble saying the name, hence, Bugooboits; we still call it this to this day.
