You crock pot haters can go ahead and hate. I agree they are not ideal for everything - but for roast beef they work great. But, I'm willing to learn. What would be a better way to cook a roast beef? Or, would you simply cook something else?
Honestly...I love a nice Beef Roast sauteed in some bacon drippings first...yeah that's right I said bacon drippings. Then assemle the seared beef with some onions, mushrooms, carrots and potatoes...and don't forget the garlic...
some fresh herbs and some beef broth to simmer with...some salt and pepper...maybe some chili powder...I said maybe.
in a Crock Pot...low and slow for about 6 to 8 hrs.
Now that's good eatin'
You know the old saying..."there's more than one way to skin a cat"
