Saute the onions and garlic in the pan until translucent. Add to the crockpot

Add the tomatoes to the pan and crush with a spatula, releasing all the juice. Reduce the tomatoes juice to a thick sauce. Add to the crockpot

Deglaze the meat, onion, tomato encrusted pan with doppelbock. Reduce slightly and add to the crockpot.

Add the honey, chipoltes and vinegar to crockpot and mix throughly. Cover the crockpot and place on low for 4 hours. Boost to high for 4 hours and then allow to sit overnight. Heat and add the tomato paste, oregano and salt before serving.
