Slow Cooker Roast Beef

Source: Fix-It and Forget-It Cookbook

  • 2 1/2 - 3 lbs. bottom round roast
  • 2 cups water
  • 2 beef bouillon cubes
  • 1/2 tsp. cracked pepper
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 3/4 cup water
  1. Cut roast into 6-8 pieces and place in slow cooker.  Add water and bouillon cubes.  Sprinkle with pepper.
  2. Cover.  Cook on High for 2 hours.  Reduce heat to Low and cook for 4-5 hours, or until meat is tender.
  3. Dissolve flour and salt in cold water.  Remove roast from cooker and keep warm.  Stir flour paste into hot broth in cooker until smooth.  Cover and cook on High for 5 minutes.  Serve gravy with sliced roast beef.
Our Reviews:

Tip: Less tender, less expensive cuts of meat are better suited for slow cooking than expensive cuts of meat.

Shelley: Very delicious! Tasted really good with the gravy. Served with butternut squash and a baked potato.

Ryan: A tiny tiny bit dry, but the gravy really helped.  Perhaps next time cut the time down to 4 hours (I did 4 1/2 hours this time).
