So last week I shared with you my SUPER YUMMY Oktoberfest Baked Chicken.  Today, I am sharing my Oktoberfest Roast Beef…. if you gave the chicken a try and liked it then you are going to LOVE this roast beef! 

I used to always have the issue with my roasts coming out tasting DRY DRY DRY—no matter what I did I could NOT get them moist…. I used beef broth, seasoning packets, tenderizers, LOTS of water…. nothing worked.  Until I tried beer!  Yep, after I discovered how moist the chicken turned out I figured “why not try it with the roast”!  Works like a charm… this is the most moist roast you will EVER eat!

Now for those of you thinking “I HATE beer- there’s no way I’ll like this roast beef!”  You are wrong.  Sorry, I just gotta call you out and tell you “YOU ARE WRONG!!!” Smile  I’m not trying to be mean…. I’m trying to get you to try a FANTASTIC recipe!  I made this a while back for a friend of mine who HATES beer, she will not touch it, she downright HATES the taste.  So, yes, I will agree that beer is an acquired taste and not everyone likes it.  But, she LOVED this roast!  When I told her I made it with beer she was BEYOND shocked!!  All of the alcohol gets cooked off and all you are left with is the undertones of the flavors.  Sam Adam’s Octoberfest is perfect for cooking with because it has a mild beer flavoring (which gets cooked off) and you’re left with the yummy flavors of pumpkin, caramel, and toffee!  Just try it… you won’t be sorry! 
2 lbs Roast (can be Rib, Rump, etc) 1/2 Bottle Sam Adams Octoberfest beer 1 Medium Onion – Sliced 1 Garlic Clove – Minced 1 Can Cream of Onion Soup Dash Salt Dash Pepper 2 TBS Olive Oil

  2. Put garlic and onions in bottom of crock pot.

To Make Gravy for Roast:

  4. Pour over roast and serve!

Goes great with mashed potatoes!!
