Crock Pot Roast

1-1/2 to 2 lbs rump roast
1 bottle beer
2 medium onions
1 tablespoon butter
1 seasoning packet of McCormick pot roast seasoning
potatoes and carrots
Spray crock pot with non stick spray. Slice onions and cook in skillet with butter until soft. Put onions in bottom of crockpot. Brown Roast in same skillet and then place roast on top of onions in crock pot. Follow directions on seasoning packet, but instead use 1/4 cup water and the whole bottle of beer. Pour over the roast. Cook on low 6-8 hours. 2 -3 hours before you are ready to eat, peel and quarter 5-6 potatoes and place around roast. Peel and cut carrots into 2 inch lengths and place in crockpot with potatoes and continue cooking until potatoes and carrots are done. There will be a very nice gravy left over to put on potatoes.
