I'm not sure if we can call this a Belgian Roast, since I used Black Sheep Ale from North Yorkshire. What do you think? Even with beer from the wrong country, this roast was WONDERFUL!! I cooked mine for 4 hours on low in the crock pot as I want it to hold together when I sliced it. I used French thyme, I really have come to love this herb. When you add a little sweetness from the sugar, you have a roast and gravy with the best flavor! Since this was so easy to make, I'll be making this one again. Made for Let's P-A-R-T-Y! ~2010

Used two 2lb eye of round roasts; cooked both at the same time in the cooker on Low for about 6 hours and done! The roasts held their shape and were very tender. Next time I will add more salt, otherwise it was very different and tasty!

The roast was nicely tender, but did not fall to pieces. It also looked better than the normal crockpot roast because of the browning. The recipes produces lots of gravy loaded with onions & garlic. The gravy is slightly tangy from the vinegar, with a sweet note from the brown sugar, and the beer just intensifies the herbs to add to the awesome flavor. This is very different from any pot roast I've made, but I would make it again. The only I thing I changed was to skim off the fat before making gravy. Next time I might stir in kitchen bouquet for color. Thank you for sharing the recipe! :-)

We loved this!! It was fall apart tender, so I couldn't really get great pictures, but the taste was wonderful. The hint of brown sugar in the sauce combined with the tenderness of the meat made for a fabulous combination. I will definitely make this again. Thanks for sharing!

Yum. This makes the BEST gravy/sauce. The meat was tender and tasty, but the gravy definitely made the dish. It was a little sweet, which surprised me, considering the dark lager I used. I also had to guess when to add the salt and thyme. Thank you so much for posting, Made for ZWT4

Very tender and easy to do. I added the thyme and salt to onions as they sauteed. I appreciated that it did not have any dry onion soup or canned soup in it. My roast was in the crock pot for 9 hours. Thanks for sharing Nick's Mom. Made for Zaar World Tour 4 Beverage Challenge - Bier ist Nahrung.
