Slow-Cooker Pot Roast
So this slow cooker roast beef is my-go-to when I want hearty comfort food.
1 cup warm water
1 tablespoon beef base
1/2 pound sliced fresh mushrooms
1 large onion, coarsely chopped
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 boneless beef chuck roast (3 pounds)
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1/4 cup butter, cubed
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
In a 5 or 6 qt. slow cooker, whisk water and beef base; add mushrooms, onion and garlic. Sprinkle roast with pepper; transfer to slow cooker. Drizzle with Worcestershire sauce. Cook roast, covered on low 6-8 hours or until meat is tender.
Remove roast to a serving platter; tent with foil. Strain cooking juices, reserving vegetables, skim fat from cooking juices. In a large saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Stir in flour and salt until smooth; gradually whisk in cooking juices. Bring to a boil stirring constantly; cook and stir 1-2 minutes or until thickened. Stir in cooked vegetables. Serve with roast. Comfort!
