Curried Mustard Slow Cooker Beef Roast

Total Time

This recipe makes a very tender, flavourful roast and the leftovers are great for a roast beef sandwich. I found that the roast was ready to carve after 8 hours but use your own judgment as all crock pots are not the same.

This was delicious and so easy. I used fresh thyme, and only two potatoes as my slow cooker is kind of small and the roast was a little bigger than the recipe called for. My husband skimmed the fat before making the gravy, which was so flavorful and yummy. This is not a typical "curry" dish, the spice simply balances out the other flavors in a wonderful and interesting way. It took about 20 minutes to throw it all together and I let it cook for about 7 hours on low.

This was very good. Nice tender meat with great subtle flavours, this meat had a great balance. We used whole grain mustard (it's all we had) and a mild curry powder which surprising wasn't overpowering or took over the dish at all, but just added a hit of something different. The veggies cooked up great and we really enjoyed this. Thanks so much for posting.
