Beer-Braised Beef

Oxmoor House

Prep time 4 mins
Cook time 8 hrs, 7 mins
Stand time 10 mins
Yield 4 servings (serving size: 1 cup)
An oval 3- to 3 1/2-quart slow cooker works best for this recipe because of the shape of the meat. If you don't own an oval slow cooker, cut the meat in half to fit the one you have. Spoon this fork-tender, saucy beef over mashed potatoes.


  • 1 cup refrigerated prechopped onion
  • Cooking spray
  • 1 pound boneless top round steak, trimmed
  • 1 (14.5-ounce) can diced tomatoes with basil, garlic, and oregano, undrained
  • 1/2 cup light beer
  • 2 tablespoons molasses
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
