    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Put sliced onions into the bottom of the crock pot.
    2. 2
      Place trimmed meat into crock pot. Top with minced garlic, salt, pepper, and the green chilies (if using, see variations below).
    3. 3
      Cover and cook on low 10 to 12 hours (high 5 to 6 hours), or until meat is tender and flakes easily with a fork, and onions are golden and caramelized. Please note that cook times may vary with different crock pot models.
    4. 4
      Remove beef to a cutting board or pan. At this stage you may slice meat in the traditional fashion and serve with mashed potatoes, gravy and vegetables for a traditional sit-down roast beef dinner, -or- shred the meat for sandwiches (see below). Shred meat using two forks, then use a slotted spoon to scoop out caramelized onions (and chiles, if using) and stir into the shredded beef mixture.
    5. 5
      Reserve some of the stock for au jus dipping, if desired. The remaining stock makes a great gravy (thicken with a little flour or cornstarch), or soup base, or save for another use.
    6. 6
    7. 7
      Italian Sandwiches:.
    8. 8
      Use a 10 ounce jar of peperoncinis (undrained) and a 1-ounce packet Good Seasons Italian seasonings in place of the green chiles & seasonings; serve with a slice of provolone on French or Italian mini-rolls.
    9. 9
      Barbecue Beef Sandwiches:.
    10. 10
      Substitute about 2 cups barbecue sauce for the mild green chilies; serve on buttered mini-rolls.
    11. 11
      -Or- serve meat in tacos with all the trimmings, or use for Easy Cheesy Beef Enchiladas #276142, or Big Thick Buttery Roast Beef 'n Cheddar Sammies #283972 -- the possibilities are endless.
    12. 12
      Leftovers are awesome, enjoy!

      Love this! Made the barbecue beef. After cooking on high for 4 hours, I took the beef out and sliced it, then put it back in the crock pot to soak some of the sauce in. Delicious!!! Thanks for posting BecR

      I need 10 stars for this recipe-used the Italian method using a chuck roast. YUM! I thought the 10 hours would never ends--the delicious smell drove us crazy! Thanks, Becky, will try the other methods as well.
