Maybe you have had all the ham and turkey for a while so looking for something else along the comfort food lines. This Beer Braised Crock Pot Beef Roast will make a great dinner to come home to after a long day. Don’t worry, the alcohol cooks out of it but I promise it will give you an added layer of flavor. (Even if you don’t like beer since you won’t taste it).
Times are still busy with the holidays, kids might still be home, sports still happening, so bring out the crock pot to have a delicious meal at the end of the day. And maybe leftovers for tomorrow. Who doesn’t love a great roast beef sandwich.

Place the roast then remaining ingredients in crock pot.
