Let slow cooking speed your way to dinner! Tender, flavorful pot roast will be ready when you are. Just add sides, and dinner is served.

Prep Time: 25 Min

Total Time: 10 Hr 25 Min

INGREDIENTS

1
 boneless beef chuck roast (4 lb)
1
 tablespoon olive or vegetable oil
1

1/2
 teaspoon pepper
6
 medium onions, sliced

3/4
 cup regular or nonalcoholic beer
2
 tablespoons packed brown sugar
3
 tablespoons Dijon mustard
2
 tablespoons cider vinegar

DIRECTIONS

1Trim excess fat from beef. Heat oil in 10-inch skillet over medium-high heat. Cook beef in oil about 10 minutes, turning occasionally, until brown on all sides. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.2Place onions in 3 1/2- to 6-quart slow cooker. Place beef on onions.3Mix remaining ingredients; pour over beef and onions. Cover and cook on low heat setting 8 to 10 hours or until beef is tender.4Remove beef and onions from cooker, using slotted spoon. Cut beef into slices. Skim fat from beef juices in cooker if desired. Serve beef with juices. 

Note: This recipe was tested in slow cookers with heating elements in the side and bottom of the cooker, not in cookers that stand only on a heated base. For slow cookers with just a heated base, follow the manufacturer’s directions for layering ingredients and choosing a temperature.
(Total time will vary with appliance and setting.)
If you're lucky enough to have leftovers from this flavor-packed roast, add up to 2 cups cut-up beef and onions to a 16-ounce jar of tomato pasta sauce for the best "mamma mia!" spaghetti sauce!

Delicious!  I bet the mix of brown sugar, dijon, and vinegar makes an awesome sauce :)
