Herbed Beef Roast ~crockpot friendly

herbed beef roast

Nothing easier or more satisfying, than putting a good beef roast in the crockpot in the morning, then coming home from a day at town/work, and lifting out tender, steaming chunks of flavorful beef – dripping with its own juices!

To make the best flavor – thaw the beef roast and sear it well on both sides. Just throw a bit of butter in the frying pan and fry each side about 3 minutes over med-high heat. Then place the roast in the crockpot, and arrange some potatoes, onions, and carrots around the edges. Sprinkle with spices and herbs, and pour some beef broth over the top. Turn it on low and leave it alone for 8-10 hours.

When you get home that evening, carefully lift the beef onto a serving tray and slice – or just pull it into chunks. This is rib-sticking goodness, easier than drive-through! :)herbed beef roastbeef roast

    Kay, I’m so happy to meet you. Thanks for the earlier visit to my site fellow CCN contributor:)
    I’m enjoying a peek at your ranch life! This crock pot roast beef is a recipe I need to learn! I crock pot constantly but never do roast beef. This looks so delicious! I’m inspired to try it!
