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.
celery, 3-4 ribs
onion, 1 small or 1/2 large
garlic, 3-6 cloves
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.
