Slow-Cooker Roast Beef

Slow-Cooker Roast Beef | Food & Whine

Ever since I was a child, one of my favourite Sunday dinners has been roast beef.  On Sundays when we’re home in the afternoon, I’ll roast the beef in the oven.  A lot of times, though, we go out on Sundays to spend time together as a family.  On those Sundays, I often cook a roast in my Crockpot so that when we get home in the evening, we have a delicious slow-cooked roast waiting for us.


My family loves this slow-cooker roast even more than when I cook it in the oven.  This meal gets a big thumbs-up from everyone. Even little Ayla looks like she’s trying to lift her thumb up (or maybe that’s a so-so gesture that she sees Cole do so often?).  Anyway, she ate it all up.


I love how it just falls apart when you cut it, so it’s easy for kids to chew, unlike oven roasts which can be a bit tough. This recipe makes such a beautiful rich gravy. I just thicken it up with a little cornstarch and pour it on top of the roast for added flavour.

I used the leftover meat and gravy to make beef dip sandwiches the next day. Wow! It was so good! I could just drink up that gravy on its own.
