Off of desserts for just a little bit. Here is a simple, easy recipe for Roast Beef. I just love it on top of a slice of bread and drenched in the juices.
The cut of meat is up to you. The traditional beef cut would be chuck roast. I find chuck roast to be absolutely delicious – but also marbled with lots of fat. I tried this recipe also with Top Round Roast and it was still delicious. It didn’t taste quite like mom used to make with the leaner cut, but it tasted good for me and that is what matters.
Slow Cooker Roast Beef
yield 6-8 servings
3 lbs. chuck roast (see note above regarding cuts)
1 envelope of dry onion soup mix
1/3 cup soy sauce
2 tsp. fresh black pepper
1. Dump your roast into the slow cooker. Add soup mix and soy sauce.
2. Sprinkle pepper on roast. Pour enough water on top to cover the roast until 1/2″ is poking out.
3. Set on low for 11 hours.
4. Remove and serve. Add salt and pepper to taste!
If you would like to add potatoes and carrots to the party, add those 5 hours before serving. For example, put the roast beef on at 7am, add the veggies at 1pm, and then turn off the slow cooker at 6pm to serve dinner.
