Slow Cooker Recipe Pot Roast in Beer

  • (1) 2-3 lb. Sirloin Tip Pot Roast
  • (1) 12 oz bottle of Hefeweizen beer (I chose an imported Bavarian ale from Trader Joe's)
  • (1) package onion soup mix  (or can substitute with minced fresh garlic, salt and pepper, and minced fresh onion)
  • Salt and Pepper "to taste"
  • 1/4-1/2 cup all-purpose  flour


Heat a shallow pan with oil on high. Get it piping hot.
Mix together the package of soup mix and 1 bottle of beer (Set aside)
Sprinkle a dash of pepper on the cut of meat and cover in flour
Sear each side of the roast in the pre-heated pan for 2 minutes or less.
Remove fro heat after 2 minutes and place in crockpot.
Pour Beer mixture over the meat in the crockpot.
Cover and cook on low for 8 hours.
"Au Jus" can be saved for pouring over the meat or thickened with flour to make gravy

Serve the slow-cooked Pot Roast With Onion Roasted Potatoes and Steamed Broccoli


  1. Sounds wonderful! Is searing it a must, or can you just throw it in with out?

  2. I haven't tried it without. But I have tried chuck roast (different cut of meat) in the crock pot with just salt, pepper, and onions and it came out glorious.

  3. Yummm, that sounds perfect thanks for the recipe!
