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.
Gather up all of your ingredients.
Place the roast then remaining ingredients in crock pot.
Cook for 8 hours on low. Check for tenderness.
Make gravy and serve. I love to serve Hawaiian Rolls with good roast gravy..

I have been a faithful crock pot user ever since they came out back in the 70’s. It can give you delicious meals when you get home at the end of the day, simmer a great pot of chili, or even keep a bunch of hot chocolate warm for you

In my humble opinion beer always makes everything taste better 😉 I love this recipe and it sounds so easy to do too. Can’t wait to try it sometime this week.
Beer has to be ICY cold, but I love trying all the new craft beers too.

This is one of my favorite foods I love when i was growing up. Definetly on my bucket list for recipes this year.
We love a good roast and leftovers. One of the only hot sandwiches my Mom made growing up was roast beef.
