Okay, big title.  But super easy dish...and I probably think you have most of the items on hand!  I made this for a friend who just had twins.  Even though I had a large roast, it seemed to shrink in the slow cooker.  But as soon as Ryan ate it, he said I had to post it!

I also had extra au jus after this meal, so I froze it for a quick french dip au jus in the future.

1-2 tbsp oil (olive, grape seed, etc.)
chuck roast (however much you want)
1 can/bottle Shiner Bock beer (or your favorite variety)
1 package dry onion soup mix
1 can beef broth
rolls/crusty bread
mozzarella or provolone cheese

  1. Heat oil in pan over high.  Trim excess fat from roast, if desired.
  2. Add roast and brown on all sides.
  3. Place roast in 4 or 6 quart slow cooker.
  4. Dump beer, soup mix and broth on top.
  5. Cook for 8-10 hours on low.
  6. Prior to serving, toast bread with cheese on top in broiler.
  7. Serve with meat on bread and au jus to dip.
