Great! I have made these a few times, and throughly cooked in the slow cooker with out finishing on the grill. They taste fantastic, and I am highly pleased with the simplicity of the ingredients.



I was a little skeptical about this one, but they turned out great. I only used one beer. I didn't feel like grilling so I put them in the broiler instead. The whole family loved this recipe!!



I picked this recipe because it looked easy and I had everything. I started to worry while it cooked because the hot cooking beer smell isnt exactly appetizing to me...but the end result is super! Used one bottle of Mexican beer (all I had) and a yellow onion...grilled for color for about five minutes afterwards. Next time I'm trying the suggested Guinness and red onion...bet its great!
