Crockpot Roast Beef

Crockpot Roast Beef produces an inexpensive meal of tender, succulent beef that carries the same nutritional value as the most expensive beef. Submitted by David McCarthy, Australia


  • 5 lb chuck roast (or any cheap cut of beef)
  • 2 cans French onion soup
  • 16oz beer (Guinness works very well)
  • 2oz (1 shot) whiskey
  • 2 beef bouillon cubes (stock cubes)


Braise roast in 400F (220C) pre-heated oven for one hour.

Place roast and all other ingredients in slow cooker set on high for first hour and then reduced to low. Stir a bit and simmer 4-5 hours.

Note: Roast can be cut up in chunks to fit in crockpot. After simmering it will be very tender and broken in pieces.

Serve with vegetables and a glass of full bodied red wine like Cabernet Sauvignon (fruity) or Shiraz (spicy).
