Slow Cooker Beer, Onion and Ketchup Chuck Roast is a reader’s recipe I had to try! Smells SO good while cooking.
I want you to give this recipe a try before you judge it. The ketchup is like a mild tomato sauce in this and you know how well beef, beer and onions go together. Funny how people can get about cooking with Ketchup, I have no shame myself.
I received this recipe from a reader on Facebook named Yvonne Marie, I tucked this recipe away for a rainy day (well, it was a snowy day). I’m so glad I gave this recipe a try, thank you, Yvonne!
How to make Beer, Onion, and Ketchup Chuck Roast:
- Chuck Roast – For the most juicy roast you will have you want to choose a chuck roast.
- Beer – Use your favorite!
- Onion – One Lipton Onion Soup Packet
- Ketchup – This may seem like a strange ingredient but the sweetness and tang really is the secret ingredient in this recipe.
How long do I cook?
- Place the lid on the slow cooker.
- Chuck roast is best if cooked low and slow for 10 hours, but if you are in a time crunch, 7 hours on high will work fine.

- When the cooking time is done, degrease the sauce around the roast. I do this by laying paper towels over the grease, then discarding them
