Every family needs an easy, go to slow cooker recipe for pot roast. This one never disappoints.
- 1 2-3 lb beef roast
- 1 large onion sliced
- 2 cups beef broth
- 2 teaspoons kosher salt
- 1 teaspoon pepper
- 1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
- 1/2 teaspoon thyme
Take roast out of fridge and let sit on counter for 30 minutes.
Cut onion into thick slices and place in bottom of slow cooker.
Place roast on top of onions
Season with salt, pepper, garlic and thyme.
Pour beef broth around the sides of roast.
Cook on high for 6 hours or 8 on low.
To serve, I skim off fat and pour the dripping into a saute pan. Heat pan to medium low and reduce liquid by 1/3. Check for seasoning. If needed, thicken sauce with flour.
I do not add the carrots to the slow cooker. I've found they tend to get "mushy" with little flavor. I peel, and thickly slice carrots, coat with olive oil, salt and pepper and roast in a 450 degree oven for 25-30 minutes.
