Slow Cooker ‘Roast’ Beef
We received SO much snow in the SLC Valley over the past weekend!
It’s incredibly beautiful! This is our first heavy snowfall of the season, so the kids have been outside most of the day playing in it with our dog, Scarlett the Goldendoodle…magical!
Perfect day to just stay home, cook something delicious in a crockpot, and snuggle under a warm blanket with anyone who will snuggle with me.
We’re all very excited about having a “white” Christmas this year, as we have quite a few avid skiers in our household…and…drumroll…haha…I’m planning to FINALLY learn to ski myself this season.
38 years old living in Utah (“Greatest Snow on Earth”) while being a non-skier will get you shunned by the local population. Haha.
All kidding aside, learning to ski is a big-hairy goal for me this winter, and it feels both exciting and scary! Do you ski? How old were you when you learned?
Back to the beef…lol…
This roast beef recipe is as simple as it gets, and rather fool-proof, so if you haven’t made or perfected your roast beef yet…give this one a try!
I’m really excited to hear how it goes for you!
We seem to enjoy our roast beef much MORE – the longer in cooks in the crockpot.
That’s really my only “secret” here…cook it on LOW, and longer than you think!
Makes about 6 servings
- 2 – 2.5 lbs. beef roast
- 1 large yellow onion, roughly chopped
- 6 large carrots, peeled and roughly chopped
- 6 cloves fresh garlic, peeled
- 3 cups beef broth, or bone broth
- 1 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
- 1/2 Tbsp smoked paprika
- 4 sprigs of fresh thyme
- sea salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
Add the onion, carrots, and garlic to your slow cooker.
Pour in the broth and then add the beef.
Sprinkle beef with sea salt and pepper and paprika then rub with Worcestershire sauce.
Add fresh thyme around the roast.
Cover and cook on low heat for 12-14 hours, until the meat is very tender. (I have cooked this up to 16 hours with good results!)
Serve immediately, or store in the fridge for up to 4-5 days as food prep.
