Welcome again to another week of Slow Cooker Sundays! This week I decided to just go with an old time favorite. I don't know what it is about a slow cooked pot roast but something about it just warms my heart and soul. The smell of it cooking reminds me of lazy Sunday afternoons with my family. I know there are about a million different ways to cook a roast. This pretty much just your traditional recipe. An oldie but a goodie!
1 (5 pound) beef pot roast
salt and pepper to taste
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 medium onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tablespoon butter
1 1/2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
2 1/2 cups beef broth
3 medium carrots, cut into chunks
2 stalks celery, cut into chunks
1 sprig fresh rosemary
2 sprigs fresh thyme
Directions: Generously season both sides of roast with salt and
pepper. Sprinkle flour over the top until well coated, and pat it into
the meat. Shake off any excess. Heat vegetable oil in a large skillet over
medium-high heat until hot. Sear the roast on both sides for 5-6 minutes
each, until well browned. Remove from the skillet and set aside.Melt the butter in the pan. Stir in onion; cook for 5 minutes, until onions are
translucent and begin to brown. Add garlic, stir for about a minute. Stir in 1 1/2 tablespoons flour; cook and stir for
about 1 minute. Place carrots and celery in the slow cooker. Place
roast over the vegetables and pour in any accumulated juices. Add
rosemary and thyme.Slowly add beef broth. Pour onion mixture over the top of the
roast. Cover slow cooker, turn to high and cook the roast for 5-6 hours,
until the meat is fork tender. Skim off any fat from the surface and remove the bones. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
