Research has shown that families who sit down together to share a meal have children who are healthier, have better self- esteem, higher GPAs and have better chances at being more successful in life(http://thefamilydinnerproject.org/resources/faq/). Coming together around the table fosters a sense of togetherness and security. It is a time to recharge, reconnect, spark conversation and take an interest in each other. With today’s busy lifestyle it is sometimes difficult to find the time to share a good homecooked meal. This recipe comes together pretty easily and you can forget about it while it cooks for 3 hours. It fills the house with an incredible aroma as the roast braises in a rich beer-based onion and mushroom sauce. The result is a fork tender roast with a flavorful sauce. It is a forgiving recipe which can sit until ready to serve. At the last minute all that is needed is a side vegetable and some mashed potatoes to sop up that irresitible sauce. Believe me by the time this is ready, your family will be clamoring to eat.
