I'm so excited about this recipe, because it's one of those cook-once-eat-twice kind of meals (always a favorite for this lazy cook!) While chatting with some ladies at my daughter's gymnastics about what on earth to make for dinner (especially with the roasts on sale at Publix this week), they gave me this recipe, and I'm so glad they did! It's one of those so-simple-throw-it-in-the-pot recipes that we'll definitely be making again, and I'm so looking forward to the leftovers tonight (stop back later for more information.)
This recipe calls for a can of beer (not penny-pinching at all. . . ) and since we don't drink I had to beg one from a friend as I refused to pay $5.99 for a 6-pack at the grocery store! If you're totally opposed to cooking with alcohol, you could probably substitute with a non-alcoholic beer, and I'm betting the taste would be very similar. (And, you can buy a single can at some convenient stores, which I found out a few years ago because I had to have a can when making Beer Bread . . . the things we do for a recipe!) 🙂
