Beer & Onion Crockpot Beef Roast

Since this summer has been so hot and humid I have resorted to cooking many a meals in my crockpot. I've tried lots ~ some we liked ~ some we didn't.
This one is a keeper!

Beer and Onion Crockpot Beef Roast

beef roast, trimmed of any fat
1/2 cup flour
1/2 tsp. minced garlic ( I used the stuff in a jar.)
1 tbsp. minced dried onion flakes
10 1/2 oz. can of Campbell's French Onion Soup
2 packets brown gravy mix
12 oz. bottle of beer

Coat roast with flour and then place in a greased crockpot.
In a medium bowl, combine the rest of the ingredients and pour over roast.
Place lid on crockpot and cook on high all day.
*I started mine around 7 a.m. and let it cook until 5 on High. The result was a super tender roast with lots of flavor.*

Before I go I'll show you a few stitcheries that I completed. Dad got some frames cut for me this weekend so I was able to finish these up and begin on some new stitcheries :O)

Everyone *LOVES* this one!
      It's a Bird Brain Designs pattern.
Next is a favorite bible verse of my Mom's. I made it for her a good while ago and have been waiting for the right size frame to put it in.
The last one is for Christmas. It's a Chestnut Junction pattern.
Hope you all are having a great day!
