Place the beef in the marinade and put the bowl in the refrigerator.

Marinate the beef for at least 3 days, and 5 or 6 days won't hurt.

Turn it over at least once a day, so both sides marinate evenly.

Reserve the marinade.

In a big, heavy skillet, heat the bacon grease or oil and sear the beef all over.

Transfer the beef to a slow Scoop the onion and bay leaves out of the marinade with a slotted spoon and put them on top of the beef.

Remove 1 cup (240 ml) of the marinade from the bowl and add the ginger to it.

Pour this over the beef and discard the remaining marinade.

Cover the slow cooker, set it to low, and let it cook for 7 to 8 hours.

When the time's up, remove the beef to a serving plate.

Remove the bay leaves.

Stir the sour cream into the liquid in the slow cooker and thicken it with guar or xanthan if you think it needs it.

Add salt and pepper to taste and serve the sauce with the beef.
