  1. Mix beer, cream of mushroom soup, onion soup mix, onion, and garlic together in a slow cooker. Season beef chuck roast with salt and pepper, and place in the slow cooker. Arrange the carrots and potatoes around the meat.
  2. Cook on Low for 6 hours, then add the celery. Continue cooking until the roast falls apart easily and the potatoes are softened, about 2 hours more. Serve the meat and vegetables with the remaining gravy on top.

Loved this recipe! I've even made it twice this month! The only substitution I made was sweet potatoes for white potatoes. The meat was moist and delicious and the veggies perfect. My entire family loved it!

Very good and meat very tender but not as tasty as Lipton onion/cm of mushroom soup with meat in foil and not quite as flavorful as pot roast in dutch oven.

I thought this was an amazing roast recipe. my family loved it! It has a nice robust flavor from the Guinness. Nice and moist. Will def make again.

I used 12 ozs Sammy A draft, 1 can 25% less sodium cream of mushroom soup, homemade dry onion soup mix (from this site). I used regular potatoes and chip carrots. I also added a little corn starch to help thicken up the gravy. I don't add salt to any meal so if you want it, add it to your plate. Were quite pleased with this keeper!

This was good, but I probably wouldn't go out of my way to make it again as we never buy beer and I use another slow cooker roast recipe on AR that we love. Only changes were to use condensed cheddar cheese soup with diced fresh mushrooms instead of the condensed mushroom soup and a bone-in veal blade roast. I roasted the vegetables separately as I have a small slow cooker. It does need more seasoning though.

Needs more seasoning, maybe some herbs. I thought it would be salty but it was not. Easy.

I really liked this pot roast. I did read the other reviews that there was not enough seasoning, but that is easy to fix. I seasoned both sides of the beef with "McCormick Grill Mates Montreal Steak Seasoning". It came out awesome. The stout beer gives it great flavor too.

Very good! I did however need to add a little salt and pepper at the table but I'd rather do that then have it be too salty right out of the crockpot.
