Slow Cooker Beef au Jus Recipe

Slow Cooker Beef au Jus Recipe

It's easy to fix this roast, which has lots of onion flavor. Sometimes I also add cubed potatoes and baby carrots to the slow cooker to make a terrific meal plus leftovers. —Carol Hille, Grand Junction, Colorado

"I added some dry red wine 1/2 cup plus broth and au jus to the rump roast. Was excellent. Next time I'll certainly make time for some mashed potatoes."

"Amazing! Set the browned roast on a bed on sliced onion and baby red potatoes, and mixed the au jus packet with a full can (14oz) of low salt beef broth (we like sauce!) Was rushed for time so did 2 hours on high, plus 2 hours on low. So good, was hoping for sandwich lunch leftovers as one reviewer suggested, but early risers in our house took care of that! Thanks for sharing!"

"Excellent recipe. So easy to put together and house smelled great. After reading reviews, I did add 2 cups of carrots. Next time I will also add small potato's. I did not brown roast, just cut in half and then followed recipe. Worked out perfectly, meat browned very nicely and appealing to the eye! Thank you Carol"

"My husband and I made this tonight for supper for him and his mom and dad. It was so simply and very rich and flavor. I also added 2 cup of baby carrots and 4 small/medium diced potatoes and only used a 1.5 lb roast. Definitely a keeper."
