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.
