Garlic Lovers Beef

This is really really yummy. I made it in the crock pot and served it over rice. Yum, it was awesome! Oh, also, I omitted the olives. Makes 6 servings.

4 pounds lean steak, cut into 1 inch cubes
2 medium heads garlic, peeled
2 bay leaves
1 large onion, sliced into rings
10 large black olives (optional)
1 (28 ounce) can crushed tomatoes
1/3 cup olive oil

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (160 degrees C).
In a 3 quart glass baking dish with a cover, layer meat, garlic cloves, bay leaves, onion slices, and black olives. Pour the tomatoes evenly over the top, and then do the same with the olive oil.
Cover and bake for 3 1/2 hours, stirring occasionally.
