We had such great luck with our Guinness Brownies recipe that I decided we should try out more Guinness based recipes in time for St Patricks Day. Check out this awesome Slow Cooker Guinness Pot Roast. The brew adds a great rich flavor to the meat you have to try to believe! 

how to make pot roast in slow cooker

Start by searing the chuck roast on all sides in a skillet, over medium heat, with a bit of olive oil. We’re just browning the meat at this point to give it flavor and color. 

seared beef

Throw the veggies into the bowl of your slow cooker, along with the rosemary, salt and pepper. Then place the seared beef on top. Pour in the beef stock (or water), Worcestershire, ketchup and the guinness.

Cover with lid and cook on high for 4 to 6 hours or on low for 8 hours or until the beef is tender and falls apart.
