Easy Beef Pot Roast
This is so simple!
I usually buy london broil or top round when it goes on sale at the market.
You Will Need
About 3 lbs of Beef Roast.
(I used 1 lb london broil & 2 lbs top round)
3 Carrots sliced
2 Ribs Celery sliced
1 Onion quartered & sliced
1 pkg sliced mushrooms
1 Pkg Vegetable Soup Mix
Fresh Cracked Black Pepper
1/3 cup Flour
2 tbsp Olive Oil
1/2 cup Red Wine (optional)
1 cup Beef Stock
Heat Olive Oil in heavy pan.
Rinse the meat. Pat dry. Cover & pat in Sea salt & fresh cracked black pepper.
flour the meat. Sear the meat on each side. You want it to brown.
Add cut veggies to the crockpot (Carrots, Celery, Onions, Mushrooms)
Sprinkle dry soup mix over the meat.
Make sure there are no chunks of the boullion flavor.
If you have to break it up with your fingers.
Pour 1/2 cup of Red Wine in the crockpot.
Add 1 cup of Beef Broth.
Cover with lid. Set it on high for 4hrs. Voila Ici! It's DONE!
2 Hrs Cooking
4 Hrs Later It's Finished Cooking
Place Meat on Platter, Cover Loosely with Foil Let rest 15 Minutes Before Carving
Aux Jus with Veggies. YUM
You can make a quick roux on the stove & add beef stock to make more gravy if you prefer. I usually shred the london broil with two forks so there are lots of meat bits in the gravy. This is delicious served over rice.
