Beer Pot Roast

Hello fellow visitor this is a blast from the past blogger signing in. Yes I know we stopped and you probably missed the awesomeness we posted but well being totally honest we got lazy. Ok lazy is probably the wrong word because we have been busy just not blogging busy.

So I am not going to waste your time rambling about nothing so cutting to the chase and getting to the recipe.

  • 3 lb chuck roast
  • 2 onions
  • 5-6 cloves of garlic
  • 2 tablespoons of tomato paste
  • Bottle of good beer. We used a black lager.
  • 4 cups of beef stock
  • Tablespoon of fresh thyme
  • Tablespoon of fresh rosemary
  • teaspoon of cayenne (if you are a sissy use less)
  • 3-4 bay leaves
  • Couple carrots
  • Couple really good handfuls of red and yellow potatoes¬†quartered
  • 8 ounce package of mushrooms quartered
  • Cup of frozen peas
  • Bacon
Steps for success:

Fire up your dutch oven and throw in the bacon. Remove and set aside once cooked.

Salt and pepper the daylights out of the chuck roast and throw it in the bacon grease to get browned.

While you wait eat the bacon.

Remove the chuck roast and set aside. Add in the onions and cooked until brown over (about 5 minutes)

Add in the garlic and tomato paste and cook for another minute.

Add in the beer, beef stock, bay leaves, cayenne, thyme, and rosemary. Throw the pot roast back in, bring to a boil, reduce, and let it simmer for a couple hours covered.

After two hours, taste, and adjust (let me guess you need more salt and since you were a sissy and choked back on the cayenne you realized it needs more heat). Now chop up all the veggies and throw them in a cast iron skillet with some more bacon grease (cook more bacon if you have to) and let them get brown over.

Dump them into with the pot roast and let this cook for another 20 minutes.

Remove the chuck roast and shred it. Dump in the peas. If it is to really liquidy then mix in a couple tablespoons of flour with water and dump in to thicken it up.

Serve and enjoy.
