I browned the roast, then added all the ingredients plus a few potato chunks. This was cooking all day while I was gone. I came home to the most delicious dinner! It sure was easy, and we loved the flavor. I thought the beer taste might be too strong...not a bit!! Made a salad and we were eating in no time. Thanks for the recipe Rita!

This dish is lovely and so flavorful. I cooked it in my Dutch oven for the recommended time, and the meat was so tender. I also added 2 potatoes, halved and cut in wedges. This was a delightful meal, and we will be enjoying this one again. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

this recipe was great! i've been trying for years to make a tender roast, i fail where others have succedded all the time! (even in a slow cooker!) However, this recipe is perfect, restaurant quality! The only thing I did different was add a couple of beef boillon cubes to the pot before sticking it in the oven, and it was delicious. Such a sinch to make too, it was ready in minutes to go in the oven, and i couldn't have been happier when taking it out. thank you so much!
