Hi there! You know we love football around here and the playoffs are underway! Let’s be honest, the fun foods and treats that go along with playoff viewing are the best part, don’t you think? These Slow Cooker Beer Braised Pot Roast Sliders are one such food. Smelling them come to fruition while stewing full of aromatics in the crock pot creates as much anticipation as waiting for the big game. 😉
My favorite way to make the pot roast sliders is to make the pot roast the day before, shave it and cover it with its gravy and stick it in the fridge overnight. I feel like letting the pot roast marry with the gravy overnight gives it even more flavor.
Then the next day the sliders can be served cold or re-heated. Any slider made around here will always be with Pepperidge Farm® slider buns. When you open the bag it smells like you walked into a bakery. The touch of sweet in their Sweet & Soft Slider Buns is a perfect compliment to the savory pot roast.

- Chop onion and celery and add to slow cooker along with potatoes and rosemary sprigs.
- Cook on low for low for 6 - 7 hours, roast should be falling apart and easy to shred with a fork when done.
- To make the gravy, remove roast and set aside. Strain the cooking juices into a sauce pan.
- Simmer the juices over medium heat on stovetop. Whisk cornstarch with a little water and gradually whisk into the juices until thickened.
- To serve immediately, shred or shave pot roast and place on slider buns; drizzle gravy over roast. To serve the next day, place shredded or shaved pot roast in a container and top with gravy. When ready to serve, add cold or reheated pot roast to slider buns.
