Crock Pot Beef Round Braised With Tomato & Herbs

READY IN: 8hrs 20mins
Recipe by mersaydees

Based on a recipe from Sunset's Crockery Cookbook. It recommends, "Serve thick slices of this moist, tender roast and its herb-seasoned tomato sauce with pasta tubes or twists, such as penne or rotelle." I think this is good family fare.

You just have to love the crock pot a tough cut of meat comes out tender and in this case it even flaked with a fork. We both thought that the Worcestershire was a bit heavy for our tastes but overall we really enjoyed this. Served with garlic rice and green peas it was a very good family meal with no great fuss. I had thicker cut round steaks and used those in place of a roast and at 6 hrs it was lovely.
