Slow Cooked Beef Roast

READY IN: 10hrs 20mins
Recipe by SueVM

This easy one pot roast makes it's own gravy and is absolutely delicious. If the gravy is a little thinner than you like just add a spoonful of flour to thicken it before serving.

This was good and easy to make. My roast was 2.5 pounds. I used Pam instead of vegetable oil and didn't measure the salt and pepper when putting on the roast. I cut back on the worcestershire sauce as it seemed like it would be too much. I only used 2 tablespoons and still thought it was a bit overpowering. It made the roast taste good but the gravy tasted too much like worcestershire sauce. I actually cooked this on the stove top for about 2.5 hours and the meat was really tender.
