Make Something Monday ... Drunken Garlic Crock Pot Roast

Make Something Monday

Check it out another yummy crock pot recipe, yes that is also the liner I used to make my work easy! This is supper yummy and a good way to use beer that a friend left over from your last get together ... yup we don't drink beer so what better way to use it up! I made this recipe up and then whipped up some potatoes and green beans to finish it off. Ok don't laugh I NEVER have used the sauce that was left over in the crock pot. I know my friend Racheal laughed at me too. I always take my handy liner out and throw it all in the garbage, ok stop rolling your eyes at me I finally learned to make good of this.

P.S. check out me I learned how to use picasa collage! Ok that was a big deal and it was so easy when you take a moment to actually figure it out! Ok stop rambling and check out the recipe!



  1. In a large skillet, heat 1 tablespoons of the oil and brown roast on both sides, seasoning with salt and pepper; remove to a platter and keep warm.
  2. Add the remaining tbsp of oil to the pan and add the onions, cook until they just start to wilt then add the garlic, them cook until the onions are tender, a few minutes more.
  3. Add the bouillon cubes to the hot water and stir to dissolve; add that to the skillet along with the beer, brown sugar, mustard, and vinegar; stir to mix well.
  4. Pour mixture into the bottom of the crock pot.
  5. Place roast on top of liquid, cutting into pieces if it doesn't lay flat.
  6. Set the crock pot on low and cook for 7-8 hours.
  7. Remove meat from crock pot and pour liquid into a pan on the stove; heat to a boil, and mix a slurry out of the cornstarch and water; thicken pan liquid with slurry to make a gravy.
  8. Serve gravy over meat or with potatoes or noodles.
