1 (12 oz) bottle dark beer
1 medium onion, chopped
8 cloves garlic, minced
1 lemon, thinly sliced
3 Tbs olive oil, divided
1 (3 to 4 lbs) boneless chuck roast, trimmed
1 tsp coarsely ground black pepper
8 carrots (about 1 1/2 lbs), sliced diagonally
7 Yukon Gold potatoes (about 3 lbs), peeled and cut into eighths
2 large onions, cut into eighths
4 sprigs fresh rosemary
2 Tbs cornstarch
1/2 cup cold water
Combine beer, chopped onions, garlic, lemon slices and 2 tablespoons oil in large zip-top plastic freezer bag. Add roast; mix well and seal bag. Chill for at least 8 hours or up to 24 hours. Remove roast from marinade, reserving marinade. Strain marinade; set aside. Sprinkle roast evenly with pepper.
Heat remaining oil in large heavy-duty roasting pan over medium-high heat. Brown roast in hot oil for 4 minutes per side. Add reserved marinade, stirring to loosen particles from bottom of pan. Bring to boil. Remove from heat; cover with heavy-duty aluminum foil.
Bake at 300° F for 2 1/2 hours. Turn roast. Stir in carrots, potatoes, onions and rosemary. Remove foil. Cook roast for 2 more hours or until roast and vegetables are tender. Transfer roast and vegetables to serving platter. Skim fat from juices in roasting pan; set pan with juices aside to cool.
Whisk together cornstarch and 1/2 cup cold water in small bowl until smooth. Whisk cornstarch mixture into juices in pan. Cook over medium-high heat for 5 minutes or until thickened, whisking to loosen particles. Drizzle 1/2 cup gravy over roast. Serve remaining gravy with meat and vegetables.

Cooking With Beer
Beer isn’t just for drinking – it adds flavor and depth to many dishes. From brisket to bread, battering and braising, beer can liven the flavor profile of many of your favorite foods. The type of beer you choose will also make a huge difference. Full-bodied ales or stouts work well for red meat, batter and soups, while lighter beers like IPAs and lagers are great for poultry, marinades and braising. You can even use beer to make cake! Just google Chocolate Guinness Cake.
All About Rosemary
This Mediterranean native is now one of the most popular herbs used in kitchens around the world. It’s from the same family as mint, but has a piney flavor that makes it perfect for meat recipes like roasts, stews and soups. It’s also delicious sprinkled over bread dough before baking and as a garnish on many dishes. Rosemary is as good for you as it tastes, containing anti-inflammatory properties.
