Drunken Pot Roast

(1 Votes)


One of the best slow cooker pot roast recipes has got to be this Drunken Pot Roast. It literally marinates and slow cooks in a little whiskey and beer all day long. One of the best ways to season beef, I assure you!

Cooking Time: 5 hr

  • 5 pounds chuck roast
  • 2 (10.5 ounce) cans french onion soup
  • 16 ounces beer
  • 2 ounces whiskey
  • 2 beef bouillon cubes
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Sear roast in oven for one hour.
  3. Add all other ingredients together with roast in slow cooker.
  4. Stir a bit and simmer on high 4 to 5 hours. 

Roast can be cut up in chunks to fit in slow cooker; after simmering total time it will be very tender and broken in pieces. May be served on buns with Au Jus or with potatoes and vegetables.

Sounds good, can't wait to try it!

Sounds good, can't wait to try it!

I would say brown on stovetop & cook longer in slow cooker...

Ok, I'm still confused, we should sear this roast in an oven at 400 degrees....covered? Maybe on a rack? What keeps this from burning at this high temp? Please help us that dont want to guess and possibly ruin an expensive piece of meat?

Sear roast in oven for one hour at 400 degrees without any liquid? Every smoke alarm in the house will go off! These are hideous instructions!

Would really like it there pictures of the finished product!

@janew1010 3846677, Thanks for bringing this to our attention. The recipe has been updated. Enjoy! --Editor of RecipeLion

I really would like to try this least at the copy I am looking still doesn't mention any liquid to "braise" the meat. Am I missing something? Don't want to burn house down and be thought drunk due to other ingredients LOL!

LMAO!! Never mind (in my best Emily Latella/Gilda Raynor voice.) Braise has been changed to "sear." Thank you.

This recipe sounds great. I'm confused as to the term "braise in oven" for an hour (Braise; to cook in liquid). What liquid is used in the oven? Thanks, looking forward to trying the roast.

@skf - Yes, you need to braise the roast at 400 degrees for one hour. -Rachel, editor for RecipeLion

Do you really mean to braise the roast (Drunken Pot Roast recipe) at 400 for one hour?
