Roast beef..... its what is Tempting my Tummy Tuesday!

With having the twinsters and the hubs in school and also him working full time, We have become a crock pot family. I’m all about simple recipes that I know will be loved when I serve them. When my picky of picky mom asks for me to make something again I know I’ve done something right. And this recipe falls into that category! Its also a great way to celebrate the fall with this hardy meal. Grab some rolls and a side of mash potatoes and your in for a great meal.
My roast beef recipe doesn’t require any browning of your beef before adding to your slow cooker/crockpot or anything like that at all. You simply add your roast beef to the slow cooker, mix and pour in all of your liquid ingredients, toss in your garlic and turn on the crock pot.

After it has cooked, remove your roast beef with tongs into a serving dish. I then like to just use two forks to break the meat that hasn’t already fallen apart into pieces. Then, I spoon some of the gravy over the meat grab the carrots and mushrooms put them on the side dish. Then place the meat into the serving dish. 
  • 1 3-4 pound boneless roast beef (chuck or round roast)
  • 1 cup beef broth
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 4 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1/2 cup of Apple cider
  • 1 packet of Au Jus on top of the roast. 

  1. Place roast beef into the insert of your slow cooker. In a 2-cup measuring cup, mix together all remaining ingredients. Pour over roast beef and set the timer for your slow cooker. (4 hours on High or 6-8 hours on Low)
  2. Once roast beef has cooked, remove from slow cooker with tongs into a serving dish. Break apart lightly with two forks and then ladle about ¼ - ½ cup of gravy over roast beef.
  3. Store remaining gravy in an airtight container in the refrigerator for another use.
