crockpot roast-

You can’t go wrong with a good Crockpot Roast Recipe; this one is just that. Chunks of beef cooked in a Slow Cooker. The meat is seasoned and cooked with onions, butter, and garlic. The ingredients are so simple and minimal that the outcome is mouthwatering. Once the beef is tender and oh-so juicy, the meat is removed, coated in tangy BBQ sauce, and broiled until crispy. SO GOOD!

how to cook pot roast?

  1. Cut the beef into about 1 1/2″ – 2″ pieces.
  2. Combine the salt, pepper, and paprika. Season meat and toss to combine.
  3. Slice the garlic and onion. Slice the butter.
  4. Add the onions, garlic, bay leaves, and butter over the beef.
  5. Cook until meat is tender.
  6. Meanwhile, combine ingredients for the sauce.
  7. Remove meat from the Crockpot and transfer to a baking dish (like this one).
  8. Generously coat with sauce and broil in the oven until the meat is crispy.

NOTE: Because you’ll be transferring the meat and broiling in the oven, you don’t need to sear the meat for a crispy finish before adding it to the Crockpot.
