How to Make Crock Pot Roast Beef

Cut Of Meat – For this recipe, you will need a 3 pound roast. I usually just use whatever cut of meat is on sale when I’m at the store. Some cuts are tougher than others but when it’s cooking in a slow cooker all day, every cut turns out nice and tender.  This time I used a round roast for this recipe and it turned out great!  Once you have your cut of meat, place it in the crock pot and then set it aside while you make the broth.

Make The Broth – In a separate mixing bowl, whisk together some beef broth, balsamic vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, soy sauce, honey, red pepper flakes and garlic.

Add The Broth – Pour the sauce over the meat in the crock pot.  The meat won’t be fully submerged but that’s totally fine.

Heat It Up – Cook the roast in the crock pot for about 3-4 hours on high or 6-8 hours on low.

Shred The Beef – Once the roast beef has fully cooked, remove it from the crock pot.  Using two forks, or some meat claws, shred the meat and then place it back into the crock pot.  Then continue cooking the beef for an additional 1/2 hour so that it fully marinates.

Serving – Serve the shredded beef on top of toasted french rolls or ciabatta bread.  Ladle the remaining gravy over the beef for added moisture.  I also like to serve a side of the broth in a ramekin to dip my sandwich while I’m eating it.
