Looking for more penny pinched recipes? Here you go!
My friend Mary shared this slow cooker roast recipe with me a few weeks ago, and goodness gracious I’m so glad she did. I popped everything in Mrs. Potts yesterday morning by 8, worked here on PPP most of the day, drove kids around town all afternoon, and walked into a (clean!) house with dinner at cooked at 6PM. (Such a gift!)
If you’re a working mom, you’ve got to put this on your menu plan soon. And if you’re a stay-at-home-chasing-kids-around-taxi-driving momma, you’ve worked crazy hard too and need Mrs. Potts to handle dinner for you just as much!
If you eat a gluten-free diet, make the recipe without the flour to fry it in (and minus the bread bowl of course) for a gluten free meal that also doesn’t use any cream soup. So good!
- 3-4 lb. beef shoulder roast
- 3 tbsp flour
- 1 tsp salt
- 2 1/2 tsp pepper
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 1 medium red onion, sliced thinly
- 6 garlic cloves, minced
- 2 large russet potatoes, cut into 1/4" slices
- 32 oz beef broth
- 1 tbsp Dijon mustard (I substituted with regular mustard)
- 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
- 2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
- 1 tbsp small cube beef bouillon
- 1 cup water
- bread bowls (optional)
- Rinse roast and pat dry.
- Cut 1-inch "X" on top of roast - not slicing all the way through the roast but enough to leave room for the onions to set down in the roast.
- Mix together flour, salt and 1 tsp pepper.
- Coat roast in flour mixture and cook in oil for 2 minutes until each side is lightly browned.
- Place roast in slow cooker.
- Stuff onion and garlic down into the roast.
- Add carrots and onions around the roast.
- Mix together beef broth, vinegar, water, mustard, beef bouillon, 1 1/2 tsp pepper and Worcestershire sauce.
- Pour broth mixture over roast, cook on low 8-10 hours. (It will take a long time for the veggies to cook.)
- Pour into bread bowls and enjoy!
