Crockpot Roast Beef

Serves: 3

I always make roast beef and veggies in one pot and put it in the oven. Of course depending on the meat, even if you buy a good cut, the roast can be dry. Therefore I’ve been wanting to try making a roast in a crockpot for a while. Here is my version of it and I can tell you it was very tasty and tender.


1 ½ pound round roast

1 tbsp olive oil

1 large onion cut in large slices

2 large carrots cut in 2 inch chunks

3 cups vegetable broth

1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce

1 tbsp salt

1 tsp dried rosemary

1 tsp dried thyme

2 bay leaves

½ tsp lavender flowers

12 golden baby potatoes


  1. Heat oil in a heavy sauce pan on high

  2. Sear roast for 6 minutes on each side until you have a rich brown crust on each side

  3. Place carrots on bottom of crockpot

  4. Add roast to the crockpot

  5. Add onions to sauce pan and cook until halfway cooked and have a nice brown colour from the pan juices

  6. Mix together broth, Worcestershire sauce, salt, rosemary, thyme, bay leaves and lavender

  7. Pour into onions and let mixture come to a boil

  8. Pour liquid into crockpot

  9. Cook on high heat for 3 hours

  10. Add potatoes into the crockpot

  11. Cook on high heat again for 3 hours

  12. Take roast out and cut into chunks ad place in a soup plate

  13. Place some veggies and juice into the plate

  14. Serve with multi-grain bread to scoop up the juices when done
