  • 3 lbs roast (I like a chuck roast for this)

  • 1 lb baby potatoes
  • 1 lb baby carrots
  • 1 medium onion cut into chunks
  • 3 cups beef broth or stock (i prefer stock)
  • 6 oz beer of your choice (this is optional but provides great flavor)
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper

Gravy Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoon cornstarch
  • ¼ cup water


  • Place roast in crockpot.
  • Place potatoes, carrots & onion around the roast.
  • Pour in the beef stock.
  • Time to pour that beer! 
  • Sprinkle in salt, pepper & garlic and cook on low for 8hrs.
  • After roast is fully cooked, take 2 cups of liquid from the crockpot and pour it into a sauce pan.
  • Whisk in the water and cornstarch in with the roast juice to make a gravy.
  • Bring to a boil, stirring frequently for 3-5 minutes until it begins to thicken. It will thicken as it cools as well.
  • Drizzle the gravy over the roast, carrots and potatoes and enjoy!
