Pot roast is a perennial classic and a staple in many homes, especially this time of year. A slow cooker makes easy work of this low-n-slow one-pot dish. Simply put everything in the slow cooker in the morning, so when you get home in the evening, dinner is ready.

To make this dish, simply pick a seasonal pumpkin beer (we used one from Hardywood Park Craft Brewery, a local favorite) and toss it in the crock with sweet potatoes, onions and a beef roast. The combination of pumpkin pie spice and pumpkin beer will add tons of fall flavor to your meal.

From Everyday Good Thinking, the official blog of @hamiltonbeach Oktoberfest Pot Roast is the perfect pot roast for fall/autumn weather! From Everyday Good Thinking, the official blog of @hamiltonbeachThe colors, the flavors and the aroma of this dish are all about autumn. We love the addition of sweet potatoes to a pot roast because it changes up the standard veggie side of potatoes and carrots. And don’t worry, the alcohol cooks off in the cooking process, so this beer-braised pot roast is good for the whole family.

Sweet potatoes can be added at the beginning of cooking time, but will be very soft.
Carrots, potatoes or other root vegetables may be substituted for sweet potatoes.

 The Stovetop-Safe Programmable Slow Cooker makes preparing a delicious family dinner easy. For starters, it comes with die-cast aluminum cookware that goes right onto the stovetop for easy browning and sautéing. After that, creating a flavorful meal ahead of time is a simple matter of adding the other ingredients and setting the time and temperature.

With spring underway, many moms and dads are rushing to get the kids to extracurricular activities. It’s not always easy to get dinner on the table quickly, but one-pot meals make it doable – especially when you can utilize the slow cooker as your at-home chef. While pot roasts are our most popular slow cooker recipes, we know you need some variety in your pot roast repertoire. So we decided to stick with the theme and change it up just a touch. This version of a traditional slow cooker pot roast is made special with the addition of savory rosemary and sweet apricots, and we used beef brisket instead of chuck roast. You can use whichever cut you prefer – we’re just happy to change things up a little bit and add a something new to your arsenal.

Beef Pot Roast
SERVES: 6

Make this delicious and hearty beef pot roast in any 5-6 Quart Slow Cooker. Garnish with fresh herbs and serve your family this easy dinner that will be loved by everyone.
Ingredients
3 to 4-pound chuck pot roast
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
3 to 4 medium potatoes, quartered
3 to 4 carrots, cut into 2-inch pieces
2 medium onions, quartered
1/2 cup beef broth
Instructions
Sprinkle roast with salt and pepper.
Place half of vegetables in bottom of slow cooker crock, top with roast, then add remaining vegetables and liquid.
Cover and cook 5 hours on HIGH or 8 hours on LOW.
Notes
Half of a 1 lb. bag of baby carrots can be used instead of 3-4 medium carrots. A long cooking time in moist heat will tenderize a tougher cut of meat. Therefore, using a lower-priced cut, such as chuck, is economical as well as delicious.
