Pour beer on top of beef roast & end up with pure comfort party food

Print this recipe
Nothing is better than a slow-cooked beef roast. This meal is pure comfort food — tender beef cooked with beer. If you haven’t cooked with beer in your slow cooker, you have been missing out! The aroma that is created while the beef and beer are simmering is like no other.
This meal is great for feeding a crowd during a football game. Throw the ingredients in the slow cooker in the morning, and this meal will be ready to serve during half-time. The great part about the recipe below is that it uses everyday, easy-to-find ingredients. Make sure to use your favorite beer in this when making!

After the cooking time is up, shred the meat and mash up the garlic cloves and stir them into the meat. I serve this tender beef on sweet Hawaiian slider rolls and top with my favorite cheese. The tender meat with the sweet Hawaiian rolls is an over-the-top game-day grub meal that can’t be beat! Invite some friends over and make this dreamy roast this weekend!

It’s hard to imagine a combination more comforting than meaty stew and mashed potatoes.

I like to use equal parts ground pork and extra lean ground beef for more depth of flavor. Don't forget the cool and creamy dipping sauce!

Potatoes are one of our most loved, versatile foods. Mashed, roasted, fried; however they come, potatoes are right up there with foods that we would struggle to do without!

I try to eat vegetables with every meal, but some nights all I really want is a big bowl of creamy, cheesy noodles...
