This is one of the few meals I make in the crockpot again and again. It’s simply, easy, healthy, and delicious, without being cost prohibitive. You can eat it as a meal all by itself, or add a salad and rolls. If you’re new to cooking, this is an easy dish to start with, and it will almost always yield fantastic results.
To make beef roast and mushroom sauce in the crockpot, you’ll need chuck roast, mushrooms, carrots, celery, onions, broth (can be vegetable, chicken, or beef), tomato paste, Worcestershire sauce, cream of mushroom soup, salt, pepper, parsley, a bay leaf, and a little flour. You’ll want to start by taking the roast out of the refrigerator to let it rest. After you rub in a little olive oil, salt, and pepper, then sear it. Then, all you have to do is add all the ingredients, including the roast, to the crockpot, and let it cook. If you want, you can cook it overnight (it smells amazing the next morning), or you can cook it in an afternoon and it’ll be ready for dinner.
This cozy, classic dish is perfect for fall and winter weather, and it can be quite cost effective when you catch roasts on sale. You can find both the ingredient list and the recipe for Crock Pot Beef Roast With Mushroom Sauce at Slow Cooker Society.
