Well, as a vegan, pot roast is kind of iffy - I'd have to leave out the roast! Seriously, I do cook meat recipes for the family, and they love pot roast, so I will definitely try your recipe minus the beer - this is a dry county after all. I'd have to go to the next county over to buy beer. Is there something to substitute for the liquid, or just add water? I usually substitute jicama for the potatoes when I make stews for me, but I like turnips too. But since the boys are not big turnip fans, I'll use potatoes. Thanks for the recipe - I have a HUGE cast iron dutch oven that belonged to my grandmother - it's been lovingly cared for and seasoned for over fifty years. So much tastier than cooking in a crockpot, plus you get the health benefits of cast iron cooking.
So you serve this with a particular bread? The kids adore soup and stews served in breadbowls because they get to eat bowl and all. Unfortunately, they inherited my love of bread and will take it over candies and cookies if given a choice. So I always need good bread recipes!
