Garlic Lovers Roast with Veggies
If you love garlic and you love a roast cooked in the crockpot, then stop everything, grab up the ingredients and get this one slow cooking for your bunch tonight! This one is great for a busy weekend or even to have on a night when you have an activity with kiddos that gets you home late.
This garlic lovers roast and veggies is a meal in one (I love that!). However, a loaf of homemade bread is never a bad idea, right???
Here's what you'll need to get started!
Ingredients for Garlic Lovers Roast:
- beef shoulder roast
- 4-5 cloves garlic
- olive oil cooking spray
- salt & cracked black pepper
- dried rosemary
- low-sodium beef broth
- Yukon baby potatoes
- baby carrots
How to make garlic lovers roast and veggies:
First, remove the roast from the refrigerator, and let stand while you prepare vegetables. This is to knock off some of the coolness and get the roast to room temperature.
Using a sharp knife, pierce the meat about ½-inch deep, and insert slivers of garlic into each hole, pushing all the way in.
Spray roast lightly with olive oil cooking spray, and season generously with salt, pepper and dried rosemary.
Brown roast on all sides in a large non-stick skillet, about 4 minutes per side and then transfer to a slow cooker.
Next, load the potatoes, carrots and any remaining garlic around roast and then pour 1 cup of the beef broth over vegetables.
Cover and cook on low 6-8 hours or until roast and veggies are tender. Remove roast from slow cooker and slice.
Finally, make a slurry by whisking the remaining 2 cups of beef broth with 2 tablespoons of cornstarch. Turn your crockpot to high and stir the slurry into the slow cooker. Add the roast back to the slow cooker, cover and cook an additional 15 minutes or until thickened.
Yum, yum and YUM!!! 😋
