Guinness Pot Roast

I don’t have the nutrition facts for this, but I can guarantee it’s not GISG approved.  But this is amazing and we all need to have cheat meals.  At least this one provides some nutrients…


App. 3 lbs beef cut of choice

Salt & pepper to taste

2 teaspoons minced garlic

2 tablespoons olive oil

1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes

2 bay leaves

2 teaspoons parsley

2 cups fresh mushrooms (optional)

1 large onion diced

1 can (12 – 16 oz) cut carrots

2 green peppers, sliced

2 large potatoes, or 3 small ones

1 can Guinness

2 cups beef broth (or water)

2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce


Trim excess meat from fat.  (This is optional, I like to “think thin” so I do this.)  Combine olive oil, minced garlic, salt & pepper to make a rub for the meat.  Peel & cut the potatoes & throw about half of them into the slow cooker with the carrots.  Then place the rubbed meat into the slow cooker on top of the vegetables, then put the rest of the potatoes, mushrooms, onion, and green peppers in the slow cooker around the meat.  Add all the spices (red pepper flakes, bay leaves, parsley, Worcestershire sauce & beef broth into the slow cooker.)  Then pour the can of Guinness directly onto the meat, into the slow cooker.  Cook on high for 4 hours, depending on your slow cooker.  I like to cook mine on low for about 12 hours or more to REALLY tenderize the meat.
Also, I should mention, I’ve done this with beef broth & done it with water & I didn’t notice a difference.  I’ll probably continue to do it with water just to be healthier.  And the veggies are always interchangeable, but i DEF recommend the green peppers.
