How to Make Slow Cooker Guinness Pot Roast

This roast is super simple to make with only a few ingredients. Start with searing the roast in a skillet on all sides. Place the roast in the crockpot. Add brown gravy mix, Italian dressing mix, Guinness beer, tomato paste, diced potatoes, and chopped carrots. Cover and cook on LOW for 8 to 10 hours. Shred the roast with two forks and serve.

  • What kind of roast do you use for pot roast? The most popular cut to use is a Chuck roast. You can also use a blade roast or rump roast.
  • Do I need to pan sear the roast before adding it to the slow cooker? I pan-sear the roast for a few minutes on all sides before adding it to the slow cooker, but you can skip that step if you are pressed for time.
  • Does this taste like beer? No. I am not a beer drinker, so I was worried that the roast would taste like beer. No worries! It was delicious! SO tender and full of amazing flavor!!
  • Can I cook the roast on HIGH in the crockpot? Yes! You can cook the roast for 4 to 5 hours on HIGH if you prefer.
  • Can you freeze Guinness Pot Roast? Yes! You can freeze leftover pot roast for a quick meal later.
  • Feel free to add more vegetables to the slow cooker – onions, mushrooms, and green peas are good.
  • Do NOT make the Italian dressing or the gravy. You are only using the seasoning packet.
  • Have leftover pot roast? Use it to make our yummy Steak & Ale Pies: https://www.plainchicken.com/steak-ale-pies/
