Ingredients

  • 3 pounds chuck or rump roast (see note)
  • 2 tablespoons steak seasoning
  • 1 tablespoon Italian seasoning
  • 2 cups beef broth
  • 1 pound baby carrots
  • 2 pounds potatoes (I used red), chopped into 2 inch pieces
  • 1 large white or yellow onion, cut into chunks
  • 1 stalk celery, chopped
  • 2 teaspoons salt (or more to taste)
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper (or to taste)
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 3 tablespoons cold water
  • 3 tablespoons corn starch

Instructions

  • Whisk together steak seasoning and Italian seasoning. Rub seasoning mix all over the roast. Grease a slow cooker. Add roast, beef broth, potatoes, carrots, onions, and celery. Cover and cook on low for 9 hours or on high for 6 hours.
  • Minutes before serving, prepare the gravy. Drain liquid from sow cooker into a medium sauce pan. Add salt, pepper, garlic powder, and onion powder. Bring to a boil.
  • Whisk together corn starch and cold water. Add to sauce pan and reduce heat to medium-low. Allow to thicken for 3-5 minutes.
  • Place roast on a large plate or serving platter. Use a fork to gently pull apart the roast. Pour gravy over roast (and veggies if desired) and serve. Enjoy!

Notes

*This method also works well with larger roasts up to 8 pounds. Simply adjust the amount of carrots and potatoes to feed however many are in your group. Follow instructions as written. For roasts over 8 pounds, double the entire recipe.
