Slow Cooker Pot Roast Recipe in Stout Beer


This Slow Cooker Pot Roast Recipe in Stout Beer is a bit of a twist on your grandma’s old roast recipe.  Yes there are still a lot of the same components, but I decided to make it a bit more savory by adding in a tasty milk stout beer!  Of course you could do all milk stout as the liquid, but to break it up I added in a bit of beef stock to help cut into the stout a bit so it wouldn’t leave any bitter taste whatsoever.  I always enjoy pulling out the slow cooker because for me it…

We actually even trim the green beans different as well lol, mom I promise your’s are still great!  I remember when I was…
