From: Katie Tullis
Recipe type: Main Dish, Beef
Serves: 4-6
  • 1 chuck or round beef roast, 2-3 pounds
  • Olive oil
  • salt
  • pepper
  • 1 can beef consumme
  • 1 can water
  1. Generously salt and pepper the roast on all sides.
  2. Heat a tablespoon or two of olive oil in a large frying pan at medium-high heat. Once pan is hot, add roast, browning on both sides for a few minutes per side until it browns.
  3. Place browned roast in slow cooker. Add beef consumme and water to slow cooker. Cook on low for 6-8 hours (I always try to go at least 8 hours so it gest super tender and "potroasty").
  4. Use fluid in crockpot to make gravy. Click here for instructions on how to make gravy with white roux (the best way!).
