In a 5- to 6-quart slow cooker, combine sweet potato, parsnip, apple, onion (see Tip). Add meat. Whisk together broth, brown sugar, mustard, thyme, garlic and crushed red pepper. Pour over meat along with the beer.

Tip: For Easy Cleanup: Line your slow cooker with a disposable slow cooker liner. Add ingredients as directed in recipe. Once your dish is finished cooking, spoon the food out of your slow cooker and simply dispose of the liner. Do not lift or transport the disposable liner with food inside.
