Beer Braised Beef and Onions with Smashed Redskins and Green Beans - Adaped from Epicurious

This is a very tasty roast recipe that goes together very easily.  Peel and slice about 1 1/2 lbs. of onions and set them aside.  Put 3T olive oil in an oven proof baking dish and brown the meat.  We used a 2 1/2 lb. eye of chuck roast but you could use any similar cut.  The eye of chuck is boneless.  When the meat is browned, remove it and add the onions.  Saute the onions until they are soft.  Add the meat back to the pot and add 12 oz. of beer (we used Stroh's of course).  Add 2T red wine vinegar and a bay leaf.  Cover and place in a 275 degree oven for about 4 hrs.  The meat is fork tender when done.  Remove the meat and thicken the sauce if you wish.
The potatoes have been here many times before.  They are boiled until done, then smashed with a spatula and placed in a 400 degree oven for about 20 min. or until they begin to develop some color.  It turns out the potato baking time is the same amount of time the meat needs to rest before serving.  Have a big red wine with this dish, or, another Stroh's.
