2 (2 1/4- to 2 1/2-lb.) eye-of-round roasts, trimmed
2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 (1-lb.) package baby carrots
1 (14.5-oz.) can petite diced tomatoes
1 cup chopped celery
1 cup beef broth
1/2 cup dry red wine

1/2 teaspoon dried marjoram
How to Make It
Rub roasts evenly with 2 tsp. salt and 1 tsp. pepper.
Brown roasts on all sides in hot oil in a Dutch oven over medium-high heat (about 10 minutes). Place roasts, side by side, in a 6-qt. slow cooker. Add carrots and remaining ingredients.
Cook, covered, on LOW 10 to 12 hours or until tender. Remove roasts from slow cooker; shred 1 roast, and serve with 2 cups vegetable-and-gravy mixture. Shred remaining roast. Store remaining roast and 2 cups vegetable-and-gravy mixture in separate airtight containers in refrigerator up to 3 days or freeze up to 2 months.
Slow-cooker Chuck Roast: Substitute 1 (3 1/4- to 3 3/4-lb.) chuck roast, trimmed, for eye-of-round roasts; reduce salt to 1 tsp; dried thyme leaves to 1/2 tsp.; and dried marjoram to 1/4 tsp. Prepare recipe as directed through Step Cook, covered, on LOW 10 to 12 hours or until tender. Remove roast and vegetables, and shred meat. Pour gravy mixture from slow cooker into a 4-cup measuring cup or fat strainer, and let stand 15 minutes. Spoon or pour fat out of gravy mixture in cup or fat strainer, and discard. Serve gravy with shredded roast and carrots.
I thoght this Pot Roast was great. I added everything that was writin in the recipe and I also added an envelope of onion soup mix, some worcestershire sauce and it was amazing. It reminded me of the Pot roast au jus that hormel makes, the kind you pop in the microwave. I will definitely be making this again. I am making the cheesesteak style sandwiches today. Look for my review.
This recipe has great potential, but it falls very flat. Too much tweaking to get it right. I've added garlic slits in the roast, 3 tbs. of worstechesire sauce, 1 env. of Lipton Onion Soup mix, Lawry's Season Salt (instead of plain salt) and 1/4 cup of flour to thicken it. Try the Mushroom Beef Pot Roast. A great solid recipe that gets rave reviews from family and friends.
