crockpot roast beef

Seriously. Seriously.

So good. The best unexpected crock pot recipe.

There are no words to describe how delicious and moist this was. So here’s the recipe.

Crockpot roast beef with veggies

1 chuck roast, 3-5 lbs.
carrots, 3-6
celery, 3-4 ribs
onion, 1 small or 1/2 large
garlic, 3-6 cloves
scallions (optional)
salt and pepper, oregano, parsley, thyme
3 T. oil or butter
3 T. flour
2 cups beef broth
1 T. worcestershire sauce

Clean and chop up the veggies. Heat the oil in a cast iron pan or similar heavy skillet; sear the roast on all sides, about 10 minutes in total. Use tongs to remove the roast from the skillet. If needed, add another tablespoon of butter/oil to the skillet and scrape up all the little brown bits. Stir in the flour, and slowly add the broth and worcestershire while stirring. Add herbs as desired; bring to a simmer and stir regularly for 5 minutes.

Place the roast in the crockpot; add the gravy and then the veggies. Cover and cook on low for 8-10 hours or high for 4-5 hours.
