This is a roast cooked in a slow cooker low and slow all day. It has a slight onion flavor and can be eaten with the gravy or used for sandwiches or shredded beef tacos.

It's super easy, so tasty, moist and tender!

Ingredient List:


3-1/2 pound roast (any type will work - arm, chuck, rump or pikes peak)

1 package dry onion soup mix (Lipton or the store brand is fine)

1 cup water

1 to 2 Tablespoons cornstarch

1 to 2 Tablespoons water







              Roast Beef
Make the Roast!
Place the roast in the slow cooker and sprinkle the dry onion soup mix over the top.  Pour the water over the roast.   I always tilt the roast a bit just to make sure the liquid gets under the roast.

Cook the roast on the Low setting for approximately 10 hours.  I start mine at 8am and when I get home from work at 6:30 pm, it is tender and delicious. 

Skim any fat from the top of the slow cooker, then remove the roast.  Pour the liquid into a saucepan on the stove.  Mix the cornstarch with a little bit of water to make a smooth slurry (this will make the gravy nice and smooth).   Add the cornstarch/water mixture to the roast juices and bring to a boil.  Boil for about 2 - 4 minutes stirring with a whisk.  The gravy will thicken up and be ready to pour on top of the roast.  If you like it thicker, add more cornstarch/water mixture.
