Slow Cooker Yuengling Beer Braised Beef and Potatoes Recipe

Slow Cooker Yuengling Beer Braised Beef and Potatoes is the perfect, easy set-it and forget-it crockpot meal.

The slow cooking makes the meat fork-tender and the potatoes soak up all the yummy juices.  This is my all-time favorite comfort food.  

My mom was a terrible cook, but this was the one meal she made that everyone loved.  It’s so easy and so good.  Plus, since you toss everything into the slow cooker it’s the perfect cozy meal for a weeknight – the perfect warm-up comfort food for fall and winter.

And since the basic ingredients, beef cubes and potatoes are so inexpensive, with a well-stocked pantry, you can serve for about $10.  Super yummy and cheap – what’s now to love?
