Recipe (Filling): Slow-Cooker Roast Beef and Potatoes
2 onions, sliced (do this and go to step 1 before preparing the rest of the ingredients)
4 lb beef roast1 lb potatoes, peeled & chopped1 lb carrots, peeled & sliced2 celery sticks, sliced2 dashes dried thyme or sage or parsley2 cloves garlic crushed2 dashes salt & pepper
Place a layer of sliced onion at the bottom of the slow cooker. Put the lid on and turn up to high; this will start caramelizing the onions while you wash and slice the rest of the ingredients.
When all ingredients are ready, take off slow cooker lid and add meat and the prepared vegetables, garlic, herbs, and spices.
Cook on high for 3 – 5 hrs, or on low for 6 – 8hrs, or until done.
Serve & enjoy!
Tip: You can substitute different vegetables if you like. For example, you can use sweet potatoes in place of the regular potatoes; or parsnips instead of carrots.
