For slow cooker meals, these Garlic Ale Beef Sliders really take the top spot. I mean, who can deny their love for slow cooked beef roast on a bun?
The sliders that you can put together once this has cooked away are juicy and packed with flavor. Don't forget the cheese to top it all off for a meal that will feed a small army (or leave you with leftovers for a couple of days!).
- 3 pounds beef chuck roast
- ½ teaspoon salt
- ¼ teaspoon black pepper
- 4 garlic cloves
- 1 red onion, sliced
- 1 cup Italian dressing
- 1 cup beer (use your favorite!)
- 2 bay leaves
- Slider buns
- Sliced Colby jack cheese
Place the chuck roast into a 6-quart or larger slow cooker. Sprinkle the roast with the salt and pepper. Place the garlic cloves on top of the roast.
Add the red onion, then pour in the Italian dressing and beer.
Place the bay leaves on top.
Cover and cook on high for 6 hours or on low for 8 to 10. Don't open the lid during the cooking time.
Discard bay leaves and shred the meat with two forks, smash the garlic with the back of a fork and stir the garlic into the shredded meat. Discard any fat, and drain off the grease.
Serve the shredded meat on slider buns with the Colby jack cheese. Melt the cheese under the broiler in the oven if desired before serving.
