Pot roast is a perennial classic and a staple in many homes, especially this time of year. A slow cooker makes easy work of this low-n-slow one-pot dish. Simply put everything in the slow cooker in the morning, so when you get home in the evening, dinner is ready.
To make this dish, simply pick a seasonal pumpkin beer (we used one from Hardywood Park Craft Brewery, a local favorite) and toss it in the crock with sweet potatoes, onions and a beef roast. The combination of pumpkin pie spice and pumpkin beer will add tons of fall flavor to your meal.
The colors, the flavors and the aroma of this dish are all about autumn. We love the addition of sweet potatoes to a pot roast because it changes up the standard veggie side of potatoes and carrots. And don't worry, the alcohol cooks off in the cooking process, so this beer-braised pot roast is good for the whole family.
The Stovetop-Safe Programmable Slow Cooker makes preparing a delicious family dinner easy. For starters, it comes with die-cast aluminum cookware that goes right onto the stovetop for easy browning and sautéing. After that, creating a flavorful meal ahead of time is a simple matter of adding the other ingredients and setting the time and temperature.
