Ingredients: 4 or 5 quart slow cooker

3 1/2 to 4 1/2 lb. beef roast

1/2 cup flour, divided

1 envelope brown gravy mix

1 envelope onion soup mix

2 cups of cold water

Suggested Beef Roast Types: Arm, Shoulder, Chuck, Bottom Round,

or Rump.

Cut the roast into 3 or 4 smaller size chunks and dredge in 1/4

cup of flour. Have 1 to 2 tablespoons of oil heated in a skillet

on the stovetop and add the floured chunks to brown.

Brown all sides of the meat on the stovetop. The flour will aid

in the browning process. If using a non-stick skillet, use just a

small amount of oil.

After browning the meat, place it in a 4 or 5 quart slow cooker.

Pour grease from the skillet. Scrape up any bits on the bottom of

the skillet and add them to the slow cooker. If the roast is not

very thick, place the meat on a rack to lift it up so at least

the top part is out of the liquid.

Combine the remaining flour, gravy mix and soup mix in a bowl and

then add the cold water. Stir until mixture is well blended.

Pour the soup and gravy mixture over the roast in the slow

cooker. Be sure that the meat is not completely covered with

liquid so that it can be exposed to the steam during the cooking


Cover the pot and turn on high and cook for 1 hour. Then turn

down to low and continue to cook for 6 to 8 hours. If it will not

be possible to turn it down after an hour, begin the cooking

process on low and allow it to cook for 8 to 10 hours.

Check for properly doneness. The meat should have an internal

temperature of at least 145F. Meat should be tender when done.

Remove the meat from the slow cooker and check thickness of the

liquid to use as gravy. If it is too thick, add a little water,

turn slow cooker on high and cook until well heated.

If the liquid is too thin make a thickener of 1 tbsp. of flour

and 1/2 c. cold water. Mix until blended and then add a little at

a time to the gravy while cooking on high in the slow cooker. Add

thickener until the gravy is the desired consistency. The gravy

can also be poured into a saucepan and thickened on the stovetop.

Slice the meat or pull it apart into small pieces. Serve with the

gravy and mashed or un-mashed potatoes.
