Slow-Cooked Pot Roast
Total TimePrep: 10 min. Cook: 6-1/2 hours
There are so many variations you can do with this recipe. Make sure your a low cooker has plenty of room for your imagination. Mushrooms, small golden potatoes and different onions. Different wines or just plain beef broth. The possibilities are endless.
Recipe was so simply and because of that I didn't expect it to taste sooooooo good, but it is a definite recipe keeper!
I just made this today for Valentines Day. The gravy for this roast is awesome. I make all kinds of gravies, but this will be at the top of my list. I did make a minor change, I did not cook my onions in with the roast. I sautéd them on the side and then added to the gravy before serving. I prefer them not to be completely cooked. I also did make a little more gravy by in a bowl add beef broth, Worcester sauce with corn starch and added it into the slow cooker to finish cooking. My husband puts gravy over everything!
This is a great starter recipe, the meat was fork tender, it just fell apart after 6 hrs. I did add celery, Yukon Gold Potatoes, carrots. I did add flavoring to it a mixed spice by Penzeys. Which was Old World. It was very flavorful
Tender and earthy in flavor. Would add more herbs for flavor. I made this in a slow oven (275*) and only took 3 hours. Not bad. Easy. Will tweak and redo.
Very tender and full of flavor. I did add more vegetables to mine and cooked it in my electric pressure cooker.
Delicious! Here are my changes: I added diced celery and carrots as well as a teaspoon each of dried rosemary and Greek seasoning because it just didn't seem right to not add any flavor enhancers. After thickening the liquid, I added some browning sauce. My roast was fork tender after 8 hours.
Delicious pot roast!
I actually made this with a chunk of venison and it was wonderful! I'm not a fan of wild game and my husband loves to hunt, so I'm always looking for good recipes to use that will take away the wild game flavor. This made the venison delicious! I added baby carrots and chunks of potatoes (didn't put in mushrooms because I didn't have any). I used the beef broth instead of the wine. I also tripled all the seasonings and liquids (since after adding the carrots and potatoes there wasn't enough juice to cover the meat). Wonderful!
