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.
If you like gravy, you can use the broth for gravy. If you have leftovers; use them to make a small beef stew.
