Pot Roast of Beef in Beer

1 tbl. sugar
1 tsp. salt
Grated rind of 1 lemon
1 - 1/2 cups beer
1/2 cup salad oil
2 onions, chopped

4 lbs. bottom round beef pot roast
Bacon drippings or olive oil

1/2 cup water
3 beef bouillon cubes

2 cups chopped celery
8 whole carrots, peeled
8 small potatoes, peeled
8 whole small onions, peeled

Mix the first six ingredients together and marinate the beef in the mixture for 8 hours or overnight.

Remove the beef and reserve the marinade.

Brown the beef in the bacon drippings or olive oil in a deep pot. Add the marinade, water, and bouillon cubes.

Simmer, covered, for 3 hours. Add the celery and the whole vegetables during the last hour. If the gravy boils away to less than two cups, add hot water or more beer.

Serves 8.
