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.

How to Make It

Step 1

Place onion in a 3- to 3 1/2-quart electric slow cooker coated with cooking spray.

Step 2

Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat; coat pan with cooking spray. Add steak; cook 3 minutes on each side or until browned. Place steak over onion in cooker; pour tomatoes and beer over steak. Cover and cook on LOW for 8 hours or until steak is very tender.

Step 3

Shred steak with 2 forks in slow cooker; stir in molasses and salt. Let steak stand 10 minutes before serving.

Very good. I was afraid the meat would be tough and dry. By shredding it and putting it back in the broth was perfect. I made the reciped exactly as directed and it was delicious!

The picture and the product are not one of the same. I made this because according to the picture, the meat looked tender, and the sauce looked rich. The dish itself wasnt terrible but it was EXTREMLY bland and needed salt. I added salt and was left with a soupy sauce. A little addition of flour did the trick. But the dish was still missing something. I made some glazed carrots as a side dish and ended up placing the carrots on top of this dish. I served the beef on top of pumpkin polenta and topped with maple glazed carrots.

I decided to try this because the picture made it look so good. The meat was super tender, but also super bland. My family didn't like it at all - we decided to go out instead. I would NOT make this again. I honestly don't know how it got an average of four stars.

NOTE: Review based on recipe AS IS. I didn't tweak everything as I went and then come here to tell you this recipe is great. What's the point? You want to know if this recipe is good straight out of the gate. The flavor was underwhelming. I was more excited about eating the mashed potatoes I served with it. Maybe using a good beer (I used Miller Light Chill or some kind of abomination) would help the flavor. Maybe also using fresh garlic and fresh basil and fresh tomatoes would help. Basically, change everything and it could taste great!

Eh, this is just ok. I've made it twice and the pro is that it's SUPER easy. I added chopped garlic to the onion in the slow cooker. I left off the molasses at the end the second time I made it. We like to eat it on sandwich rolls with cheese. It's a fine, easy dish, but nothing to write home about. I probably won't make this recipe again; time to try another slow cooker beef recipe.
