1 3- to 4-pound fresh beef brisket
2 medium onions, thinly sliced and separated into rings

1 clove garlic, minced
2 tablespoons cornstarch
2 tablespoons cold water

1. Trim fat from meat. If necessary, cut brisket to fit into a 3-1/2- to 6-quart slow cooker. In the cooker place onions, bay leaf, and brisket. In a medium bowl combine beer, chili sauce, sugar substitute, thyme, salt, pepper, and garlic; pour over meat in cooker.
