DIRECTIONS

  • Spray the inside of a 4 to 6 quart slow cooker with non-stick cooking spray (or preheat oven to 325 degrees with rack in the middle).
  • Mix all the ingredients, except the meat and gravy mix, in a large bowl.
  • FOR THE SLOW COOKER: Put half a cup of the sauce mixture in the bottom of the slow cooker. Set the meat in and pour the rest of the sauce over the top.
  • Turn the slow cooker to low and cook for 8 to 10 hours (or if you are late putting roast in cooker, cook on high for 6 to 7 hours) When the meat is easily pierced with a fork, remove from the sauce and cut into chunks and put on a platter. Cover platter with foil to keep meat warm.
  • Turn the slow cooker to high and sprinkle in the packet of beef gravy mix. Stir until sauce has thickened.
  • To serve, drizzle some of the sauce over the meat on the platter. Put the rest of the sauce in a gravy boat or small pitcher for the table.
  • INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE OVEN: Spray the inside of the roasting pan with non-stick cooking spray.
  • Follow the directions as above and cover the pan tightly with heavy-duty aluminum foil.
  • Bake in preheated 325 degree oven for 5 to 6 hours or until easily pierced with a fork. Take off the foil and let brown in oven for another 45 minutes. Remove meat from sauce and cut into chunks and put on a platter. Cover platter with foil to keep meat warm.
  • Pour the sauce into a saucepan and sprinkle with beef gravy mix; thicken over medium heat and serve, as described above.
