Slow Cooker Pot Roast Recipe

This slow cooker pot roast recipe ("Rinderschmorbraten im Langsamkocher") is so quick to put together in the morningIt's an easy way how to make pot roast that will have dinner ready, almost the moment you walk in the door.

Use a beef rump roast or a chuck roast, well-trimmed of fat. A 3 to 3 1/2 pound roast, together with the vegetables, will make about 6 - 8 servings.

Pot Roast

Often, the meat is browned first when using slowcooker recipes. It does add to the flavour, but in this case, it really isn't necessary. 

Slow Cooker Pot Roast Recipe

Ingredients:

  • 3 to 3 1/2 lb roast, see above
  • 1 tsp salt or seasoning salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1 onion, cut into chunks
  • 3 - 4 carrots, peeled, cut into chunks
  • 4 - 6 potatoes, cut into chunks
  • 1 celery stalk, cut into chunks
  • 1 cup beef broth
  • 3 tbsp corn starch

Instructions:

  • Rub all sides of meat with salt and pepper.
  • Put all vegetables into bottom of slow cooker. Pour broth over vegetables.
  • Put seasoned meat on top of vegetables.
  • Cover and cook on LOW 8 - 9 hours or until meat and vegetables are tender.
  • Remove meat and vegetables. Pour liquid from slow cooker into saucepan and bring to simmer.
  • Dissolve cornstarch in 1/4 cup water and slowly stir just enough into liquid until thickened.
  • Season gravy with salt and pepper as needed. Serve with meat and vegetables.

Hints:

  • Vary the quantities of vegetables according to your taste.
  • Use 1 bouillon cube dissolved in 1 cup water for the beef broth if needed.

Even faster, why not put everything (except the potatoes) in the pot in the evening and keep in fridge. In the morning, take the pot out, add the potatoes (making sure you push them to the bottom so they are covered in liquid) and turn it on.

"Sehr Gut, Gerhild!

Your Quick Fix Soups e-book is wonderful. My Swiss wife is going to love the soups that I make for her with your recipes. She already loves my soups, but your e-book will greatly expand the variety
