Belgian Roast- (Crock Pot)

READY IN: 8hrs 15mins
Recipe by Brenda.

I love crock pot cooking, and am always in search of new recipes. Growing up in NE Wisconsin, we are lucky to have a large Belgian/German settling and influence on food. This recipe combines one of my favorite comfort foods with the convenience of a crockpot. This smells so good when I come home from work.

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
